HI

"On an AMD based system, if supported, dual channel makes little to no difference as AMD processors (with the exception of the FX-53) do not take advantage of the increased bandwidth"

warriorscott i was wondering if i should get your exact same hardrive as you, the maxtor diamondmax 10 200 gb with 16 mb buffer or should i get a seagate 7200.8 250 gb. There is very little diference in price. I read some reviews on the maxtor one and they weren't nice.

Drives great although i have the 8meg version. By far the cheapest drives on the market but that might be a thing about where i live ATI cards are alot cheaper here than they are in the us and other places, if the 250gig seagate is about the same price i would get that just because its bigger.

I wont buy another seagate drive anytime soon after my last one had its fluid bearing rupture and give me the biggest fright of my life when it soaked the inside of the computer but those things happen to all drives eventually and all brands every now and again i did get a good run out of it before it went bad.

Go with whatever offers the best value for money.
