Only thing I don't like abou it, is the two of them that I have worked with (build another rig with one) both had bogus CPU temp and 5V rail readings. Other than that, it's an excellent board.

Off topic... it's YOUR thread
It's plenty for me actually... I only load what I need and only play a few games!
The price/size to perfomance is high though!
Also, it utilizes ball bearings vs hydro used in the 74G.
You wont see a big diff.comparing to some of the newer drives!
The WD SATA 80G or even a MAxtor Diamond 10 will do you very well and you'll get more storage for less money.
If your set on a Raptor do get the 74G... wish I had then!

No the 36 wont store a lot... that's the idea.
36G Raptor for OS and programs, second drive for storage

IMO 2gb of dual channel ram is a must if you're going for a gaming rig, so I definitely wouldn't make sacrifices in that area...
