Specs for ~$1200 System - Comments Please
I am brand new to the forum. I have tinkered with PCs for years and replaced just about every part, but I have never tried to build my own system from scratch. I want to build a relatively high end system for about $1200 and these are the specs I am close to finalizing. Please let me have your thoughts/comments, especially about any compatibility issues. Thanks.

1. I would replace those Seagates with WD Caviar Black drives.
2. Minor point, but considering how cheap they are, I'd replace that DVD-ROM drive with a second burner.
If you plan on running RAID 0, I'd add an external hard drive and imaging software to your rig, because the RAID *WILL* break sometime.
