i to am building my own z71v, and i to am going to college. but i just got $2000 for graduating from highschool! i still dont want to spend more than $1600 though. I am going to get it from RJTECH, let them install my cpu, the wireless adapter, and it comes with a dvd/cd-rw drive. I dont need a dvd burner in my laptop i have a 16x dual layer in my desktop. I figure its easier to let them install the cpu and wireless adapter, and it will only cost me $25 more than ordering it seperatley and instalilng myself, and ive taken apart a laptop before, its not very fun. My question is if i want to install my own hard drive, is there a small hard drive bay that comes out to install the hard drive? my current comcrap laptop that im selling has one of these. This way i do not have to take apart the laptop in order to put in the hard drive. I know there will be a place for me to put in the ram, im getting 2 gigs of ddr2 533mhz for only $230. One more thing, Buying my own hard drive saves me $30 and its not much trouble to install. What is PATA? i know wat SATA is, and im not gettin SATA cuz they cost to much. On newegg they have ATA5, ATA6, and ATA7, which one of these do i get?
