    Location: Death Star or Mount Doom, it depends on the day.

    His current system is:

    XP Pro
    AMD 4200
    Asus M2N 32 SLI delux
    8800GTS 640
    500 watt Anteq basiq
    2 Gb OCZ plat 6400

    I recomended http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HD-206-SE

    He has been left to his own devices and came up with this!

    Although I stated with his current system its a bit overkill, and is it true that all that extra cache can hinder the performance on a 32bit operating system? Or is he better going with the F3 for future proofing reasons? He has already stated that he wants an upgrade soon.

    Can't comment on the cache issue but I'll be going for one of the Seagate drives at that price. I don't think you can't really go wrong with either but I guess the main difference is that the Samsung has double the storage. Does he need the extra space?

    Not really I guess. Yeah he is probably better of with the Seagate. Of all the wise men on here no-one knows of the cache factor???
