Default high speed HD's

If your going to spend a lot of money you should invest in a 10k or 15k HD as one of your drives. HD's are the oldest technology in a computer so you gatta stay current

HDDs that run at that speed create a lot of heat.

I would agree with that, but have you seen the stats between the Raptors & DiamondMax 10's? The Raptor barely beat the 10, and the 10 has 230 Gb more space. If you can tell the difference in 0.5 ms access time, then stay with the raptors.... I personally can't tell the diff.

true, which is why you get a 10k low memory as master which you install the OS onto. and buy a 7200RPM mass storage HDD as a slave.
