    Hey guys.

    My first question is that I want a new monitor. Im selling this monitor to my brother. Its a 17inch Dell black monitor. He is giving me $120. I want a monitor around $130 or so...any reccomendations? Thanks!

    Also, I'm thinking about getting one of these 160GB HDD. Either THIS Samsung for $110, or THIS Western Digital for $115. Should I go with the western digital? Also I had nooo clue you could get drives this cheap...is there something im missing here? THANKS!

    Yeah but given those 2 choices I would still choose the WD.

    you have the deluxe my friend...I dont really care about sata or MAX HDD performance, so i saved the 30 bux...i just want ATA..which is fine.

    What is the diff between 133 and 100? Transfer speeds right? Is samsung not known for very good HDD? Thanks so far guys!

    How important is 8mb buffer and 133 ata? Which one is more important?

    Cuz the samsung has 8mb buffer AND ata 133...3 year warranty too. Why wouldnt you recommend them vb?
