HDD- Seagate Barracuda ES.2 1TB

RAM- CORSAIR DOMINATOR 4GB 1066

CD/DVD Drive- Sony Optiarc DVD/CD

But i dont know what Cooler and Case I should get. Any suggestions?

For the cooler, try the Sunbeam Core Contact Freezer CPU Cooler (Socket 754/939/940/AM2/AM3/LGA775)

Some people get 18C with this baby :ph34r:

how come you are getting a server grade seagate?? they aren't really any better speed wise, and the standard barracuda's are plenty reliable. other than that good build

I agree that you should check out the core contact from Sunbeam, I keep hearing good things about that

i would also recommend the antec 300,900,902, 1200 series of cases. Or I saw a review for something called the Coolermaster Storm Sniper that looks pretty nice. the Cooler Master CM690 is good too.

Those Corsair PSUs are REALLY nice. Picked up the 750W for my new system. I'm not fan of Seagate myself. I find them to be noisey and they tend to fail on me ...which explains my bias.

 

I'd go with this drive instead:

WD - 1TB - 32MB cache - 5yr warrenty

 

 

I went a different route though so can't speak for that drive personally. I put two of these (so almost 1.3TB) in RAID 0 for the same price as your 1TB Seagate drive:

WD - 640GB - 32MB cache - 5yr warrenty

 

If you would rather have quiet than speed, I'd go with the AAKS (16MB cache) instead of the AALS.

both Seagate and Western Digital are great so get whichever is cheaper.
