    Can you please tell me wether these components will be compatible as a system. I plan to run Windows Vista on this system. Currently, the total prices is £435 and I would'nt like to go much higher. However, if this system can be improved for not much extra cash then please say. TIA Paul

    That ExcelStor is okay, but it does vibrate a bit. If I were you, I'd ditch the two smaller drives, and go with one WD 640Gb Drive.
    Do you need 2 DVD writers?

    My friend had one of those cases, it's horrible for airflow. He's now happier with his CoolerMaster Elite

    The motherboard looks terrible, what's your total budget and what do you really need?

    Ooops! Didn't realise i'd put in two dvd drives and two hard drives. Only need 1 of each. The hard drive doesn't need to be too big as its only for the OS and software. I have another 500gb one already.

    Total budget is £435
