I know harddrives are instant bottlenecks to any computer. Your system looks really balanced so there's no major bottleneck.
Not bad at all...

Any of the new Asus ones I know for sure support it, I would reccomend anything from their P5 line (I love Asus as you may be able to tell ) for a nice SLI mobo that is decent at overclocking try the P5N32-SLI Deluxe or if you want major overclocks look at the P5WD2 or P5WD2-E (the -E is 975x, the other is 955x) BUT there is no hard drive that can fully saturate SATA 150 so SATA II will offer zero performance increase, if you want the fastest HDD available look at the WD Raptor 150 (EXPENSIVE!!) and if you've got the dough, get 2 in RAID 0

ive just done a bit of research and apparently it is hardly noticable the difference between 150 and 300. only if you are opening many gigabytes etc.

i think i will just get a cheapo 200GB maybe 150

is the raptor the one with the clear cover? they look awesome. but i whats the point if its inside the case all the time!

Yup, the E-Premium is the best board out there, of course, over here it's only $20 more than the Premium, now, when I bought mine it was $70 more, but still not double!


Looks good, I would have used a Seagate HD, but that's just me
