  1. hello
    in a few months i am going to bild a rig. so far these are the choices:

    -ThermalTake Highest Xaser III Super Tower Case
    -MSI 875P NEO-FISR 1875 chipset mobo for P4 478 socket
    -intel P4 2.4C 800 MHz FSB. 512 chache, HT CPU chip
    -Corsair XMS, Xtra-Low Latency 2-2-2-5, 1 GB (512X2) DDR 3200
    -Lite-On 12xDVD+-RW drive
    -Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy2 Zs GAMER edition

    i just wanted to know which HD is better between these two::



    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

    i think that just might cover eveything....exept mayb the heatsink....any suggestions?

    :D thx for ne help !!! :p

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