I had $900 to spend on this SB rig. So far, I have spent $500 on...

MSI P67A GD65{B3}
Kingston HyperX X2 1600C9 4gb
XFX Radeon 6870 DFE 1gb

All arriving this week around Wednesday/Thursday

I have approximately $400 to spend on the cpu & hard drive but I'm having some issues trying to determine what hard drive to buy. PLEASE help me determine what's the best choice. I want to have the cpu & hd in hand before the other hardware arrives.

i5 2500k with the spinpoint. The drive costs less and is faster.

easy: Samsung Spinpoint F3 - $55 shipped... unless you're going to get at least a 120GB SSD.

2600k is $330
HD103SJ is $55

Still lands you under $400, and for rendering HT will help you. Not to mention as we move into the future more and more apps are becoming multithreaded, so the more threads the better!
