hey how about the HDD I'm going with 2 seagate barracuda 7200 500GB on RAID 0, I kinda need the storage, but is there a way to improve the performance?

Case selection is excellent but Thermalright 120 extreme cannot fit in it without removing side-fan on Cosmos-S. Its king of CPU coolers. I would have gone with Cosmos-S but it cannot fit the TRUE.

If your Going for a monster build,and Money isnt really an issue,get 2 RaptorX's.

And the HDD you Originally posted are 7200.10,You should at least go with 7200.11

how about the cooling for the GPU, I'm I good with the stock, or should I do something else?
post #89 of 162
You should consider either the XFX 9800 GX2 black edition or eVGA 9800 GX2 SSC and stock cooling should be fine.
