Sorry about my sig, I'll change it right after this post.
I was going to get a much bigger Hitachi, but like I said I'll add more(I have 2 HDD cages with support for 3 HDD's each.I always think ahead, IMO it's better to have the fastest HDD for your OS and games, then add more as you need the space!
It makes sense to me, and the Raptor is definitely a no-brainer hardware decision.It sure beats my old 7200 and 5400 RPM HDD's LOL!
I still have to get a nice HS/Fan for my AMD 64 4000+, I don't mind spending up to $100 on it.
My main three that I narrowed down are:Scythe Ninja, coolermaster Hyper 6+, or the Zalman CNPS 9500 led. I heard the Zalman is really nice, what would you guys recommend for the best HS&F,
