    Get 2 wd caviar 500 gb or 2 wd caviar 320 gb. They are super cheap now and put it in raid 1 or 0. The other parts are superior

    Very awesome Jack, very awesome. That case is really supremo too.

    BTW: Did you order these parts from the egg?

    I don't know why but I'm not really a RAID kind of guy lol :rolleyes: Maybe later I'll get another 640GB and get a 1TB RAID 0 strip.

    Thanks :D I ordered the RAM and HD from the egg, the others I ordered from ZZF, Tiger, and Frys.

    Only reason I got the Q6600 was because it was only $180 without MIR for a G0 retail boxed chip. Otherwise I would have gone with a Q9450.

    Good build, I think the 640gb is solid. They're testing very fast, and are priced great. Add another down the road for over 1tb raid, thats just super. I wanted to pick one up but money constraints kept me to 320. :mad: Next will be one of those. Have fun though.:toast:

    NOO DON't If you go raid only buy hdds with same disk space. Because if you put 1 TB and a 640 GB in Raid 0 you will end up with only 1280 GB of Disk Space since Raid 0 reduces all hard drives to the lowest space hd. And it will be a waste of 360 GB.

    I know, I said I would get another 640GB like I have right now for a 1280GB RAID 0 strip.


    Also, I got the Cosmos S today and the thing makes my old Tsunami case look like a mini ATX.. the box itself is like 5x bigger than the Tsunami lol.
