I can't believe you recommened a 1.5TB Seagate to that poor guy.  Those drives have horrendous firmware issues.  Even drives that supposedly have 'fixed' firmware have a horrible reliability record.  It seems that all the .11 sequence drives should be avoided, as should the .12 sequence until they've been in the channel for awhile. I've used Seagate drives for many years, but until this sad episode in their history is over I'm sticking to Western Digital and even Hitachi.

No, there's just different versions. There's going to be one top of the line, best of the best rig that everyone drools over, and there's going to be a core i7 build that most people would be more likely to afford.

to know that in your new best of best build incorporates the Gigabyte x58-UD3R.. i have that same board and I think it's great. listening to the specs of the 1500$, it sounds alot like what i got, with some differences. like the BING vs GOOGLE search thing, too!
