    Hi there, I'm thinking of getting an Ultima Viper setup. I think this will be pretty futureproof for the forseeable future.
    I plan to swap the main drive for the WD caviar Black 1TB.
    But I also want to put in a smaller, fast system drive. What should I use? I am still a bit wary about the SSDs, especially as they are pretty expensive and don't have proven durability. Should I get a raptor, would it be worth the cost?
    Lastly, the old chestnut, What graphics card should I get? I'll admit, I havent really watched developments since I got my old 8800 GTX but I am veering towards a 5870 card. Is this the best bang per buck choice? If so, which one to get???

    Many thanks for your time :)

    My personal opinion would be go for the 5850 or 5870 and use a Samsung F3 for the boot drive.
