Get a single drive for OS imo. If you do RAID 0 then make sure you always have a backup of your stuff.

Why not save a lot of $ and build your PC your self too? lol

Peace of mind, warranty, etc. It's roughly a $6000 in parts build, & it's $1000 more from them & it's completely done, ready to go, no PITA DOA MOBOS etc. Plus, I never built a computer before, so I'd be scared to break something.
In that case I'd definitely build it myself! eek.gif I'd build one cheaper for free lol. There really isn't much to screw up, especially if you read the manual and/or consult someone one here.

So would it be better to just go with a single SSD then?
I wouldn't get a 480GB drive tho. Up to you if you want the capacity or not. I'd just grab a 256/240GB drive. If you want more capacity then get two and run RAID 0.

What are the specs of the system? X79 or dual SB-E CPUs for that much of course?

X79 - Asus Maximus IV Extreme
3960X Processor
Dual GTX680 4GB OC Classified SLI
& a bunch of other good stuff.

Building a computer is easier than building a lego kit with directions. 6000 in parts is wow, you doing like triple 1440p monitors or some really s serious professional work? Just being curious haha.

But ya on that budget why the heck not use ssd for a main storage drive. I personally wont even buy an ssd until they are affordable as storage drives.

I'm a newb..also I hear horror stories of people ordering everything from newegg & some parts malfunction or are DOA. I'd like to just turn it on & be done. I don't mind paying the extra $1000. Digital Storm seemed to be the best company to build my custom computer.

Also, I'm going for a dual monitor 27" monitor setup or triple 23/24" setup. Idk whether to go with IPS or TN, etc. I'm eyeing the overlord tempest OC monitors right now.

I'd like those, but digital storm doesn't offer them. :/

It's fun building your own PC plus you get the satisfaction of being able to say - Yeah I built that bad ass machine! thumb.gif

That is a z68 mobo, the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme is X79.

I could set you up with a great PC for about $2k+ less lol.

Plus, building a PC is a learning experience. I have learned plenty from my first build! It would be much more rewarding. Plus, how will you know your PC or its true potential of you don't mess with the ins and outs your self start to finish? biggrin.gif

i've also never had a DOA...ever.

I know, but I'd rage if something was DOA. Also, I'm very impatient. I'm just scared to build something that expensive. If it were $2k then I'd try it out, but over $5k mehhh. This will be my work computer mainly, so I'd like a legit company to build it. My personal computer I'm getting next year will be my learning build though.
