    I'll try to get Raptors. Just WD is such a pain. I might be able to get Seagates for free.

    Don't forget the G15 keyboard and G5 or G7 mouse! (I really do love this G15 kb)

    don't bother with the raptors... a couple of the 750gb seagate 7200.10's with NCQ and 16mb cache's will perform quite nicely and give you nearly 10x the formatted capacity of two 150gb raptors.

    Auzentech and M-audio make very good high end sound cards.

    Their not "slow" by any means if thats what your asking,
    I have one so far and it's as fast if not faster then the DM10 U16 300gb's
    If your looking for all out speed,
    consider the other options presented to you

    No. Not this time. I think I might end up having to build 15 of these, so I don't want to go through the hassle of H2O.

    If it was for me? Yeah. Especially since I got the new Corsair kit.
