Build is fine but you don't really need a 750W PSU. 650W would still be plenty and save you a little money.

Well im not sure if you guys know but i found out asus owns asrock.they are manufactured under the same company.asrock focuses more on budget builds while asus is more about the features for bigger betyer.builds so asus and asrock are interchangable so i believe we should trust them if you trust asus.

False, ASRock hasen't been a part of Asus since 2007. They are currently owned by Pegatron Corp.

Most people still assume they are part of Asus but they had a pretty harsh falling out and it was on some of the major tech sites as news with a poll. IMO, they have put out some really cool boards since the split and it looks like it was for the better.

First, both Western Digital and Seagate (the only major players left in the HDD industry) headquarters are based in the United States, it is the corporate executives who call the shots on prices.

Second, they are not going to drop as fast as you want, at least not pre-flood levels. They've basically said these new prices are going to stay, take it or leave it in this report here.

Third, the flood was in Thailand, not Taiwan.

There's a Seagate building right here in Pittsburgh.

Their main factories are over there, but their HQ's are both over here. I know Seagate has some factories over here but the majority of production is done over seas to "reduce in cost of labor". Western Digital was the biggest company crying wolf on the flooding.
