Other than the savings, is two 160GB drives at 7200.7 better than a 300GB drive at 7200.8? I don't know what that means exactly, but I take it the axtra .1 makes a big difference? If so I woul get. Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 Plus NCQ 300GB. The drive that won the budget test was a seagate, but that 200GB drive is the only one without NCQ. Even the lower capacity drives have the NCQ label

IAM, it would be a mistake to get something other than AMD64 now. They are dirt cheap and even cheaper than the ancient AXP so I don't think it would be wise to take any other route than AMD64.

Really? So its all good? All the parts match and compliment each other? Mwahaha, the first thing I'll do after putting it together is snap my bloody ME cd, in favour for my XP pro, which I couldnt run before.
