Hi Folks,

Thanks for all the energetic replies on the video and sound card questions. I found them to be very helpful.

Now, onto the hard drive? I have choosen Western Digital WD1200JB(120GB). What do you all think about it? I am going to use my PC to play games like Neverwinter nights, Warcraft III etc and also use it for my home theater. I will have on-board RAID in my motherboard. So, which hard drive will give me solid performance?

My next HD will be the 80 gig version of what you listed, the 800JB. I put a WD 80GB 800BB in a friends computer and it runs much faster than my IBM.
