    Hey plz let me mention this first 1: a allout gaming rig is gonna crash/die whatever it is the price of performance in crease.

    2:If you what to keep things ? burn to disk often

    3:if you can afford a spare rig use it for a back up server


    think about what you want. a nice little rig for surfin a gamming machine ?
    buywhat you can afford and go from there , my sis bought one of those 299. special's from dell and couldn't be happier.

    Erm, how is he gonna have RAID on his mobo if he doenst even have SATA? :confused:

    And how often will a hard drive crash? For the amount of crashes a HDD has, do you really reckon that its worth spending the extra on the 2 HDD's? Remembering, he probably cant have RAID, so if he did get 2x160GB's and the HDD with all his data crashed, it would still be the same as getting the 1x300GB :p

    Some mobos had PATA raid (iirc, via SILICON IMAGE firmwares onboard, but don't quote me on it... I could be wrong here)

    * PLUS, & there are cards from say, Promise, that also do PATA RAID.

    LOL yea there probably are (im not too sure myself), but im saying, he doesnt have a high chance of having onboard RAID, and he is only getting this HDD in a crappy rig for more room and stuff (isnt he?), so it wont be worth all the money and stuff to get all these add on cards and so forth
