    Your choices look great, but due to the defective drive rate from newegg, I wouldn't order an HDD from them. Poorly packaged, that results in damage.

    You could do better somewhere else I think. OWC is fine, AFIAK. I've not seen issues with damaged shipments.

    Thanks for the reply, I'll look into other stores.

    What is the best way to set up the ram?

    Right now I have 2 x1gb

    If I add 4 x 2gb

    results may vary, ive been ordering from newegg for over 4 years and have only had 1 defective drive; whether it was a manufacture defect or shipping defect who knows but ive ordered well over 25 drives from them and one out of 25 aint bad.


    But that drive looks perfect and the price for that memory is a good choice. go for it!

    You can find guides online, but you want 2X2gb in first two slots in top riser, 2x2gb in first two slots in bottom riser. If you want, 2x1gb in lowest number riser [I can't remember if it is top or bottom].
