    Thank you for the correction (not in a sarcastic tone).

    I think I'll be using the onboard SATA controller on an MSI K8N Neo4-F motherboard, or at least that's what I'm leaning toward for a motherboard.

    I ought to post up my planned parts for this computer so that they may be critiqued.

    Also, "hot water heater".

    And while we're at it... You said "appearently", rather than "apparently".

    Oh well! That's that for the correction rubbish...

    Does anyone have suggestions for hard drive models? I said earlier I'll probably go with Hitachi, but has anyone had good experiences with something else?

    My favourite:
    7200 RPMs per minute -
    doubly wrong - RPM is already plural (the 'S' comes after "Rotations," not "Minute") and of course "per minute" is redundant and repetitive....

    Anything from Seagate is reliable, and they have pretty bulletproof warranties. You definitely want to put the OS on a seperate drive from the stuff you're recording, otherwise the Windows will lock up. For example, my friend has a pretty high-load server, and he made the mistake of putting the OS on the same drive as some of his storage, so whenever his OS drive gets a bunch of data requests or gets written to a bunch of times in a row,, he get's the wonderful "System is busy" message. So, a word of warning to you.
