I got your back...

I am sure I could get it to work fine because I am not an idiot, but I know some of the stuff I would be completley clueless on. I guess I may be here a bit more after I get it

Have you already bought this? If not, don't get a raptor. Sure, the 10,000 RPM may sound appealing, but modern drives are fast enough so that you don't need to worry about it. For the same amount of money, you can get a fairly large drive which will last you through many movies, games, and music. I wish I had had the money to get 160GB back when I built my system.

Didn't buy it yet but, you sure? hehe. This system is going to be all gaming ATM. I will be upgrading it as time goes and will prolly get a 300gig HD, another 7800 and 4 gigs of ram in time. Is the 10k RPM just not any better then the 7.5k's? If thats the case, then advice well taken and I'll change it out
