i just ordered these today for my mATX system as you can see it was lacking in some departments.

i ordered two of these 500gb F3's for raid to replace my OMG slow (50mb/s) 80gb/2mb single HDD. great reviews and personal appraise from here at OCN and across the net lead me to chose this over the similar priced .12 cudas and more expensive blacks.

i was debating this one or the Coolermaster Silent pro 600w (modular single rail PSU's) and decided on this one because it had 4x PCI-e power connectors vs 2. both had really good review but the XFX is a newer model also (rebranded PC P&C). also with my 400w pos psu, i couldnt overclock or unlock my CPU (its unlockable, just cant be sustained on 400w) or overclock my video card...and i couldnt hook up my DVDrw and CDrw. it was a real drag. and it has no PCI-e power connectors.

lastly a new case. my current cast is a compaq oem mATX and although it works it has no front USB/audio and i hacked a hole in the side to mount 80mm fan over the PCI-e when i had a fanless video card there. now it just looks ugly. i got this one because it has 2x 120mm side intake ports as well as a front 120mm intake port with no HDD cage. having no cage and 120mm up front so i have enough room for a single radiator and pump for when i decide to stuff a small water system in this sucker.

Total from ebay = $228 free shipping. definitely cheaper then from the egg (even though i like the egg better) i just hope nothing comes DOA (x/fingers). what do you guys think?
