And, why is one hard drive $100 more than the other? They look like the same one to me.

I thought the same thing. These prices seem unreasonable I would do some more shopping around before you do this build. I usually look on Newegg and then I try Amazon to always get the best prices.

And also I am pretty sure if you are a student or know someone with a student email you can still get Windows 7 for WAY cheaper. Not exactly sure if that is still going on, but I would imagine it is.
