New Build

I'm very excited! With news that I am eligible for the Australian Governments deal to reimburse students 50% on computers (upgrades, repairs etc); I have decided to upgrade my build! I'm planning on spending about $2000+AUD on the following items:

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-EP45T-UD3P
RAM: Corsair DDR3 4GB PC-12800/1600 -
PSU: Corsair TX-850 850W
Case: Antec 1200
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1.5TB

I changed the PSU because my deal on the 1000W Coolermaster fell through. What does everyone think of the Corsair 850W?

I'm also thinking of buying a 1-1.5TB HDD, I've been using Seagate all my life and never had a problem, but have heard many a story about problems with the 1TB+ Seagates - can anyone confirm or suggest what I should do or buy?

Feel free to leave feedback and/or suggestions about the parts I've picked. Also, I'll need to name it so go nuts!

Until next time,

Western Digital has a better warranty so I recommend that for the HDD.
