After about 5 years of owning my American Express - Blue Card, I earned about 11,000 rewards points. Sure, it sounds like a lot, but actually 9,000 points is worth about $50.00.

I wasn't actually trying to earn points, so forgetting about it helped me save the points I earned. Anyways, I decided to cash in 9,000 points for a $50.00 Best Buy gift card.

My plan was to order a 2nd internal hard drive so I could have RAID. Being the genius that I am (sarcasm), I didn't first check to see if Best Buy carried the same model HD I currently have (see sig rig specs).

Oh well, back to the drawing board. Maybe I should pick up one of those new spiffy USB 3.0 external hard drives.

@ Clee. The 1tb WD Caviar Black. Isn't it the WD1001FALS?
Oooooooh, when did BB switch to the WD10000LSRTL?? Last time I bought one there, oh Christmas time, it was still the WD1001FALS. Doesn't it just matter that it's a 1tb drive? I asked on the Evga boards if I could do it with both my drives, one being WD and one Seagate and they said no problem. The only reason I didn't go through with it was because I'd have to start with clean drives and install everything again.

I think you can do it, they're both 1tb, both 32mb cache, both 7200rpm. I could ask WD if you want.


Oh other news, the rep from coolitsystems.com posted on the W/C board to speak up in the discussion of the Eco against the H50. Here's the thread: http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...t-corsair.html

As always, I'll let you know.
When I RMA'd my 2 year old 1000 watt.. it took them 3 weeks solid and they sent me a brand new one.. I had to send in my old one.

I can remember when Seagate was the only Drive to buy.. They were great. Then they bought Maxtor and they started falling apart in droves.. Instead of bringing Maxtor up to speed they brought down the Bentley of HHD. Now Fujitsu and WD are the best IMO.

Yes, I have the WD1001FALS.

I think you're right that it just has to match storage capacity & speed. Not sure if even the cache size has to match. I would need to look more into it.

Call it OCD (I do), but I just like the idea of having 2 exact matching hard drives for a RAID set up. I know I'm weird, but I am what I am.

I appreciate the offer to ask WD for information on RAID, but that's not necessary. If needed, I can always ask them, myself.

I agree with you. When I was building my first rig, most of my buddies were big Seagate supporters. So, I was influenced with Seagate as #1 in my mind.

Then after digging in further, I noticed Seagate was having some issues with the Barracuda line. After time and time of hearing horror stories with the Barracuda, I decided to go back to the tried & true, Western Digital. WD made a name for themselves based on Storage, so I figure I can't go wrong.

I still have a Seagate External 500GB Desktop Hard Drive & its been great. No personal bad experiences, but I just hate hearing those horror stories and taking a risk on experiencing it, hands on.

Quick (personal) gaming update.

I have been playing Starcraft II - Beta. After installing my 2nd 5770 I noticed a strange bug in game-play.

Long story, short:

80% of the time, at the start of a match, several "Minerals" and 1 or 2 "Vespian Gas" will be "invisible".

Along with this issue, if any units go passed an "invisible line" (in game) they would disappear, and no long be able to be re-selected.

Conclusion:

After some searching, I found out I was not alone. Several people had posted the same issues..

It seems the bug/error is isolated to the following:
  • 5000 Series ATI Video Cards
  • CrossfireX Technology
  • AI Optimizing

So, I disabled CrossfireX (through the CCC GUI), and disabled AI optimization.

Therefore, I'm pretty much running the game without any of the same problems, but without my 2nd 5770.

Hopefully Blizzard will have this issue fixed, at least, before the final release is out.

Yes.. Battlefield was glitchy at first.. Water would strobe out on me or glass windows would strobe. The game updated and no problems anymore. Running everything with Crossfire 5770s with all the bells and whistles.

I'm giving Blizzard the benefit of the doubt, and letting this issue slide (as a consumer) because it is BETA mode.

If this issue persists in the final release, they'd better be ready for an angry e-mail with plenty of exclamation marks!
