What do you think of that LG monitor ?
As a gamer I have always preferred Samsungs gaming line,
but those LG monitors are peaking my interest as of late
especially the LG 34in line.
I am currently running a 40in flat screen LG TV lol
That build looks nice, it should settle in (burn in) nicely.
Thanks for sharing :)

My monitor is best for my use I have to say. I bought a BenQ 24" at first, but within 10 days it had faults and had to replace for this LG. Their build quality is good. And with 5ms response time I feel happy while I play. And it do features reading mode and several customizations.

Honestly, I'm not against on the test of Hard Drive failure rate however WD is one of the reliable to pick on. Likely more on isolated case hence failing.
Personally my favorite, or "go to" drive is Seagate, I have had nothing but Awesomeness out of their Barracuda series.

@Purshu_Pro, I can usually tell when I'm impressed by the knowledgeable acquisition, and assembly, of computer hardware components because my imagination continues to fire off images in my mind of just how cool:cool: it feels when you power it up!:D
Congratulations!!:)
Yeah its really an awesome feel to have one of this kind. Thankyou.

I have serviced more than 40 PC's which had issues with Seagate HDD's. WD was least in that case, say only 3 out of 10 PC's come for repair with WD issue. Rest all of them are Seagate. So I decided to choose WD instead of any other.

I used both. Before like 6 years I had a Seagate as System and a WD as backup drive. Both worked well.
Now I'm using a SanDisk Ultra II SSD and WD Elements 3 TB as Network drive/Media server for all needed setups/files/backups.

Seagate has always ranked above WD, but WD did buy SanDisk so that should be interesting.
I admit it bro.
Here in India costumers also claim that warranty claim is different and they had to struggle for replacement. But WD is superior in terms of their support compared to HDD brands.

A picture is worth a thousand words, amazing what you have build with $900...

As for SSD, i like samsungs P830, pretty old drives and you can get 256gb for about 80 bucks. Had mines for about 6 years, went thru 2 macs and currently on my pc, still had 94% life and still performs just as new.

I will value ur suggestion, but after my research I have chosen PNY CS1311 240GB Internal SSD and ordered it too.
