    Is it possible to get a bad hard drive brand new ?

    Sheesh. Are you definitely beyond a shadow of a doubt sure that everything works? slow installs are a bad sign and usually result in an aborted install. Take everything out that you dont need. leave one harddrive, one optic, and memory and video. Use no soundcard nothing. But dont work under the...

    Is it possible to get a bad hard drive brand new ?

    If you have the smaller sata and straight psu cable (the smaller one) use that. I have raptors in all my systems and use both sets of cables (the original older large psu and large sata and the smaller set) but like the smaller one because i can wire manage it better. Save the larger psu molex...

    Oh man. Dremel and eyeglasses. Eye protection is a must. I had one guy (i build computers for this dude)who thought he didnt need them just because he was going to cut a small one inch hole in his case and got a piece of metal right in his eye. He was rushed to emergency and luckly for him it...

    Is it possible to get a bad hard drive brand new ?

    Nope. I too upgraded from the 74 gig raptor to the raptor X and love the drive and no there is no difference in installing the X from the normal. Just contact WD and they will issue you a new one. No big deal. Just tell them that the hard drive clicks and shuts down. Also mention that the...

    Omega I'm not flaming anyone. However, i am criticizing the stupid comments that have no meaningful value to the OP other than as bragging points. The OP is not interested in stroking anyone's ego. Son any of the thousands of builders here can install a computer in less than an hour but that...

    Is it possible to get a bad hard drive brand new ?

    If you heard a click than its your hard drive. I own that raptor x and believe me that there shouldnt be clicks. And yes the more systems you build the more you will realize that parts come bad from the factory.

    Help me out guys, new rig or new monitor?

    Get a monitor. Your specs are great. No need to upgrade that. Your crt while produces a great picture does not warrant its size. Sorry but crts are crap. The picture does not justify the size no matter how you argue it. I was like you, i used a large crt just because i couldnt let go of the...

    Not using official Sony components? Your warrantee is void

    The fact is that you have no idea what your talking about. Just by agreeing to purchase that item, you agree to the terms and conditions. The second money exchanges hands you agree.

    Is a MacBook Pro for me??

    I would defintely buy 2gigs. I bought my machine with 1gig module and put the other gig myself. Bought it way cheaper from newegg.

    Building my first sff rig! what do you think of my stuff?

    Just my two cents. I have the qpack and have had if for about 7 months and still using the psu that came with it. Damn thing is stable. Sure based on all the negative posts on here about the psu it still amuses me that mine runs fine. I use a one of my old 6800 ultras gpu with a raptor and one...

    Mad @ Newegg

    Actually newegg does give you the difference. Bought with them for years and never had to get burned like this. Only problem is, they generally are more cool when the package hasnt arrived at your door yet. In other words if its just shipped they will honor the new price. did this countless...

    Dude run your cpu for at least 20 minutes and letting it heat up the paste and than it comes right off. Just twist it back and forth a couple times and its a clean break. This is my method and have been building pc's since the k6 days and never had a problem.
