and Maxtor does make SATA drives, but im not sure they make 300gb ones tho... actually all companies have SATA drives, its just that Maxtor is the only company that uses Ultra ATA/100/133 because maxtor actually invented the Ultra ATA/100/133. the other companies currently use Ultra ATA/100

Would it be a good idea to get the 36 gig raptor and then get a Maxtor Diamond as my larger drive?

But the Maxtor Diamond is only a ATA. The raptor is SATA. Can they work together?

Okay I think I will go with the 74 raptor and then get this as the second Maxtor. How does that sound?

I am about to order everything except the RAM I wanted is out of stock. Does anywhere else sell it for what should I buy in it's place. I want to get everything ordered today. Will I ever really need more than 1 gig.
