Total of : $843.77 with taxes and shipped.

Hows this looking?

Replace that B75 motherboard with a H77 chipset, for example this one http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=71117&promoid=1312 ASUS P8H77-I

B75 don't support RAID (H77 does)
B75 don't support Intel Rapid Storage Technology (H77 does)
B75 don't support Smart Response Technology (H77 does)
B75 Maximum USB 2.0/3.0 ports 8 / 4 (H77 = 10 / 4)
B75 Maximum SATA 2.0/3.0 ports (H77 = 4 / 2)

It's worth the few extra $$$ and i can see in your budget that you can afford it. thumb.gif

And replace that 1TB hdd with the Seagate ST1000DM003. It's cheaper and it uses 1TB platters (faster) not sure if that WD does.

I second the mobo change if you can afford it. I disagree with the HDD Choice.

1. The WD has an URE error of 10^15 rate while the Seagate has 10^14. Meaning the more data read, statically the Seagate will encounter an Unrecoverable Error on at least 1 Bit well before the WD.

2. The WD has a 5yr warranty. Seagate has 2yr warranty.

3. The WDs are tested for 24/7 Operation and have an average 1.2 Million Hour MTBF @ 24/7, while Seagate doesn't publicly specify recommended daily use or MTBF.

Alright I passed everything by the boss. A bit over budget but the enterprise level drive sits well with him. We don't get budget until April. So that's when I will buy it. Thanks to everyone!

biggrin.gif Awesome! Make sure you change cpu cooler to something that fits (Artic Cooling) and that you buy rails that fit the rack. You will need to measure or look up specs.
