Are two HD's that much better than one and why would you not use two of the Raptors?
Any info on case fans / cooling ?
Is this case decent or are there some that you all would recommend instead of it. ? ( Hard to tell from the pictures )
PSU...Good enough or could be better, brand name ok ?
CPU cooler / fan ?
Anything else being overlooked here ?
Really appreciate all the assistance / idea's being offered here...
