I have decided to build my new computer, buying only parts. Now, I have to have a large HD, 400GB or more, but those are so goddamn expensive, so is there a chance that I could buy two 200GB HD's and partition them so they appear to be one HD? That would make things alot easier for me. And I would save 100€.

And, I bought a Nforce4 motherboard by MSI, with the 939 socket and ddr2 ram, and the only difference I have found between 939/ddr2 and other sockets for AMD Athlon 64 and other ram is that the processor and ram are more expensive. Is the 939 socket and ddr2 better, or just more expensive?

Why don't you just have two HDDs? I've had four HDDs for a year (total 400 GB), no problem for me... :D

I will. But I'll try for myself first. Even if it in the end costs me more € than there are flies on a negroe. :)
