$-41.95

Subtotal: $826.46

Total Amount: $830.45

So this system does not have a CDRW drive but that's about #20 bucks additional and of course no windows 7 Pro software and that's $139.00 Its a pretty sweet system. My guy wanted raid so I purchased two of the most reliable drives I could find. Don't prefer WD, but the KIT came with the WD black. Used as a backup drive I guess. And lastly no video card. I choose what I think is a hi quality power supply and a similarly high quality Motherboard.

You should consider the SSD drives. Lightning fast and the technology is now reliable enough to surpass conventional disk drives.

never mind I see it now.

You're getting way too complicated.

Get a run-of-the-mill board with an LGA-1150 socket
to handle an I7-4770 at 3.5GHz,
add 8GB ram (DDR3-1600) for a 64 bit OS,
a $100 or so video card (that's more than good enough),
a 512GB SSD (PNY Pro or Crucial MX100) and
. . . don't have confidence in the Samsung TLC as yet
a 1TB 10,000 rpm second hard drive (WD1000DHTZ)
. . . for long term storage and backup and
a CD-R/W, DVD R/W drive
a 24" 1920 x 1200 monitor (not a 1920 x 1080)
. . . or if you want to get fancy, a 30" 2560 x 1600

If you want reliability then you should be looking at the WD VelociRaptor or the WD RE data center drives. They have an order of magnitude (10x) better error rate that the rest of the line.

Hitachi is the more reliable drive. Not western digital.

The Hitachi GST Deskstar (7K2000, 5K3000, and 7K3000) had the lowest annual failure rates, from 0.9% to 1.1%. Meanwhile, the Seagate Barracuda Green had a whopping 120% annual failure rate (an average age of 0.8 years). While those were warranty replacement drives—likely refurbished ones already used—the other Seagate drives had failure rates between 3.8% and 25.4%.

My last build for this guy had the western digital RE drives. We had two of those fail in two years.

Did you notice that WD purchased Hitachi GST two years ago ?

I use the Velociraptor 10K drives myself.

Either way . . . I tell my customers
. . . "Redundancy is your friend . . . do backups"
