They are not the same, but both are good companies overall.

Seagate's warranty process is pretty painless.

Ether the WDs with 320GB platters or the Seagates with 250GB platters are good choices.

Nope, two different companies. Seagate and Maxtor are now the same company. Western Digital is a separate company. Fujitsu and Toshiba are two other separate HD companies but have a partnership.

To answer most of your questions: (1) a fridge cannot cool a PC (2) 64-bit OS for over 3.4GB (3) If a PCIe card fits, it should work (4) Resolution, not screen size (5) Report, not respond to Spam (6) Single-Rail/Non-Modular PSUs are not always better than Multi-Rail/Modular (7) Sequential does not matter as much as random for OS drives (8) Requirements come before hardware for servers
