I am going to build my brother a new gaming machine. He told me to pick it all out and try to not spend too much money. LOL yeah right, but I think what i have come up with is a lot cheaper then many advertised gaming rigs and maybe even better. It is definately enough to run game that comes it's way for a year or so atleast. Ok so here is what i have come up with.

case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16811146028

hard drive:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16822152045

mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16813138270

video card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16814127217

psu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16817103931

processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16819103562

memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16820145576

He already has a monitor and windows xp pro, cd burners and the basics so with this he will be set!

I have been using Samsung drives for many years. This is mainly due to them maintaining a 3yr warranty when the competition went to 1 year.

Ummm... Still don't see a Seagate up there! :lol:

FIVE year warranty, and blazing speeds... You can't go wrong.

$99 for 320GB - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16822148140

$79 for 250GB - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16822148144

I only buy/use Seagates when I can. The new 7200.10 uses perpendicular recording technology which is better for shock tolerance, efficiency, and that is how they cram 750GB on one drive! :D

Never had a Samsung, but here are my current drives:

3.5":

1x 750GB Seagate SATA 2

1x 500GB Seagate SATA 2

1x 500GB Hitachi SATA 2

1x 300GB Maxtor SATA 1

2x 200GB Seagate SATA 1

1x 200GB Western Digital PATA

3x 80GB Seagate SATA 1

4x 40GB Maxtor PATA

2.5":

1x 160GB Seagate PATA

1x 120GB Seagate PATA

Only don't have Seagates where I had other review samples, or the drives were cheap/free/came with the PC.
