Build Help.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello All,
I'm getting ready to order/build me a new system (below) & have a couple of questions.
I'm going to be re-using a couple of the parts from my current system (case, power supply & Western Digital VelociRaptor 300GB) & just wanted to know what SATA ports I should use?

When hooking up the optical drive (ASUS DRW-24B1ST DVD Burner) & HDD (WD Velociraptor WD300GLFS-01F8U) I use the SATA II 3Gb/s ports correct?

It's been several years since I've built my last system & some things have changed.. I just want to make sure I do it right!
Thank's, Phil B.

Omg. That's a huge upgrade!


Anyway, yeah use the SATA II ports for SATA II drives, and SATA III for any future SATA III drives you may get.

 

(Something is awfully familiar about this.  hehehe)

Get a different motherboard if you plan to overclock. GD55 will do.
