Default Re: Need help deciding between ...

Newegg has that listed as a deactivated item there for some reason maybe discontinued by Seagate. But you can still look over the specs and product info there at http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148108

Or go direct to Seagate at http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.js...ReqTab=Install

The WD Caviar Blue is seen for about $5 more but sees newegg's return policy over buying from EBay if that matters any. You can compare the specs between the two drives before deciding. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136073

Wow, thanks! I'll have to take a look at that! $6 for a reliability-check is definitely worth it

For the same price as B, you can get this CPU which already has one more core and unlock the fourth core with the right mobo.

What's a good mobo for this, do you think? How do you "unlock cores"?
