The Next Generation PC - Day 2

Today, we’re going to show you all the kick-ass hardware you should get to create a game-conquering PC. Happy shopping!

Hard drive

Recommended – The size of installs these days (Vista alone is 20Gb) means you’ll want at least a 300Gb drive, with the SATA-II (aka SATA-300) interface.

Elite – Spend a bit more on a drive with a 16Mb rather than 8Mb cache – this will speed up load times. Even more gets you a super-fast drive that spins at 10,000 rather than 7,200rpm.

Recommended part – Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD4000KD 400Gb

Elite part – 2x Western Digital 10,000rpm Raptor X 150Gb
