Re: Present Help
I wouldnt go RAID (my personal opinion). SSD looks good, but they are pretty pricey, but thats what I am getting for my next build. The Velociraptor looks pretty good, my friend had it and it book up windows xp fast. I think the Velociraptor would be better than RAID0.
Its kind of hard deciding between i7 or the Phenom II. The i7 has triple channel DDR3 ram, and I dont think the AM3 Phenom II has them yet. Correct me if I'm wrong. But the i7 cost more than the Phenom II. You could ask for money and save it for the i5?
