The Caviar Black drives are very good performers and very dependable. Keep in mind that beyond a certain point a faster hard drive won't have any affect on gaming performance, and will have diminishing returns on loading times.

The Desk(Death) Stars were infamous for premature failure. I know some folks on another forum from the UK and they don't seem to have any issues with Hitachi drives. I like their 2 1/2" drives but I'm not so fond of their 3 1/2".

The "best" system is cost efficient, reliable and does what the user requires.

Nice system Aus_Karlos,

I have been avoiding overclocking my system because,
A. I have never overclocked a system and I hear it is difficult for the new i7's to overclock also because of the FSB being built on the chip.
B. The turbo is better in the new i7's so it overclockes itself automatically up to 3.2~3.6ghz.
C. Not sure if my power supply can handle it either.

The prices will drop alot in one year... Look at video cards 600$ rang in 1-2 years there only about 130$
And then there will be something else that is overpriced for all the "I have to have it now" group. :grin:
