    either way i wish to buy two and put them in a raid array....suggestions are helpfull


    ALSO...what PSU should i get... id like for it to be sleek, have high voltage and be reliable...as for i will either be using a radeon 9700 pro on it or a 9800xt

    The Seagate is bigger, faster and has 5 years of warranty - there is no question which one to buy.
