Seagate BarraCuda 2TB Hard Drive Review!

<![CDATA[Seagate Technology is an American data storage company formerly incorporated in 1978 as Shugart Technology. Since 2010, they are incorporated in Dublin, Ireland, with operation headquarters in Cupertino, California. (
The motherboard that this hard drive will be working with is the MSI 970 Gaming Motherboard. The motherboard has 10 x SATA 6 Gb/s ports and can support up to RAID 0/1/5/10 modes.
This hard drive haBarraCuda2TB-larges 2TB of storage with transfer rates up to 140 MB/s and the drive also has 64MB of cache. The rotational speed is 5400 RPM and the read/write speeds are 150 MB/s. The form factor of this drive is a 3.5in and has a 2 year warranty of parts and labor. There are obviously pros and cons for this drive, but the Pros overpowers the cons by far. Also, the price is fairly low with a price of $69.97 and is a very good drive in my opinion for the price.

AMD FX-8350 Review

<![CDATA[AMD has been the one and only rival to the "superior" CPU company, Intel, and has stayed close in the race since creation. They have always been right next to Intel with the speed of processors, and in my personal opinion, they won the pricing with their products.
Out of all the processors that I've tested, this processor is one of the best for the value. This CPU will give you the best bang for your buck and give you the best experience if you are looking for a cheaper, and faster CPU.

This CPU is an AM3+ socket with a CPU speed of 4GHz with a speed of 4.2GHz with turbo. It has 8 cores, technically 4 cores, with 8 hyper threaded, but I digress, with 4 x 2 MB of L2 Cache and 8 MB of L3 Cache. this processor will give you the best power that you need, without taking a huge hole out of your pocket. The price of this particular CPU is $179.99 and is a very reliable CPU for this price.
Personally, this is one of my favorite processors, just for the simple fact that it can keep up with the higher end products and other CPU’s, while having a very reasonable price for the capability this CPU carries.
