Destroyer 666 has a song called Australian and Anti-Christ... could be fitting for an Australian death metal fan who wants to name an evil machine.
The 1200 is an awesome case isn't it?~

I see no issues with it... give it a shot, if it isn't up to your own specs, at least you have 500x2 leftover for storage in that huge 1200..

well I've never set up a raid, but the idea of raid to pull information off more than one hardrive and compile and execute, the single 500 gb hard drive i have now with a 32mb cach takes 20+ secounds to pass through a windows xp boot sooo, i would find out more information on differnt sync time of differnt size hardrives. Ive partition off 20 gb and intalled windows 7 and the boot time are considerably reduced

Thats your best bet, raptors are a waste of $ IMO. I would look into the WD 640's myself, http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...tCode=10010082. I've heard nothing but great things about them and will be picking a pair up for raid 0 myself.

Yup, these are trully great HDDs, anybody who needs to get more storage space should definitely get their hands on (at least) one of these.
However, make sure you get a Caviar Black, coz they're just a few bucks more expensive but perform a lot better than their Caviar Green and Caviar Blue counterparts.

I'm not a huge fan of the 900 v2, tis ugly IMO!

The 1200 is absolutely fantastic, could not be happier! Removable air filters = win idea! But high maintenance The cooling is second to none!

I fried a 250GB HDD the other day so went out and bought another 500GB Seagate so I'll definately be RAID0ing 2 of them Unfortunately I lost 500GB of storage data the other day, I'm shattered and gals!

In lighter news, I just got home from purchasing the rest of my build! Woo! Its a bit weird catching the train with over $2000 in cash in your bag! They'll probably have my parts in 3-5 business days, 7-8 at the very most (damn 285 is hard to come by! )

Stay tuned guys and gals!

Righto!
Got my CPU, Mobo, RAM and PSU yesterday; still waiting on the HDD and GPU!
Unfortunately one of the sticks of RAM was faulty :angry: so I'll be RMAing it ASAP...
GPU and HDD are apparently ready on Friday so stay tuned.
Also, photos as soon as I find the cable for my camera. Please ignore the lack of cable-managing, it was late and I just wanted to fit everything in there
