you see i would have cocked up with the wattage there, i didnt even notice. (im stupid see)
and as for HDDs, 250+250 striped = 500GB in total when set up in a RAID 0 array. id never use 1TB so thats why i put up 2x250GB
and on the CPU, i need to look round for a 925 model then
also, do you think ~600W will be enough to power this stuff?
