  1. Greetings Community,
    I would really like some quick advice on the system that I am putting together as well as some questions . I am building this rig for work, using Windows 7 64-bit Pro. It will be used for Photoshop, Illustrator, database work, and the usual word-excel-chat-outlook-browsing - the ATV of PC have always at least 10-15 apps open on screen at all times and move files to/from network servers periodically
    So, my 4 main Q's:
    The dvd /cd that I am buying do they need a special cable? If so what type of cable.
    The two motherboard that I have chosen which would be a better choice? And the best RAID level to set up. Based on my hard drives 3 ("Western Digital Caviar Black WD5002AALX 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive" )
    and finally what power watts would be sufficient for this system?
