For the amt you spend on the 2 tb drives why not get 2 1-1/2 tb drives.That plus the other savings mentioned and you could definitely get a much better gpu as a previous member mentioned. jmho

I could but he is going to be editing HD video so i opted for the more powerful cpu and more reliable motherboard. Also i already own the 5770 i had originally bought for CF and WC but found you can't get full coverage WB for the XFX 5770's.

I got the 2TB at a good price around 109+tax after i price matched them. I ended up saving around $300 in price matching. Also considering his current video card was my old x1900xt i think the 5770 will be a nice boost.
