Also can you explain the "raid-0" thing............ ??
you get diffrent types of raid.....
raid 1 ; 5 ; 0 ; 50 ; 6 ; 10 and the list goes on....
raid o is taking 2 hard drives and miking it into one big drive
eg: 2 X 500 gig = 1000 gig meaning it works on both hard drives not on the one... write and read times are a little better
raid 1 that is taking 2 hard drives and making a copy of the other... that helps with redundancy called mirror.
if you are not to sure about it and computers etc... stay away from raid.... you will mess up somthings very soon if you like to tinker....
for a good solid choice go with a good single drive to install everything on too... like i said in my one post.
and at the end of the day if you end up turning out to be a pc guru... then ugrade to a ssd and do the rest.....

For $2000 budget-get the i7 2600k and a 64-128GB SSD for the OS drive.Actually the GTX 580 is way overkill for 1 1080P monitor.I would suggest the 560ti or 570.Save you money for something you might actually use.
this is ocn... nothing is overkill....
the 580 is a solid choice... i can garentee if you go for the 560 you will be desipointed and will end up upgrading in the near futuar... odo not get me wrong the 560 is strong but do you want somehting right the first time or buy somthing that is not really wht you want and upgrade later and have a card lying around that people do not wnat to buy it from what is worth and kill you on the price when you want to sell it.... the people on ocn are always looking fro prices almost next to nothing and will not pay things that are the normal going priceEdited by levontraut - 4/16/11 at 8:02am
