Hitachi GST Deskstar T7K250 HDT722525DLA380 (0A31636) 250GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive
Hitachi GST Deskstar T7K250 HDT722525DLA380 (0A31636) 250GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: They run quietly and keep up with normal demands in a 3.2 GHz Athlon-64 system.

Cons: The connector on the drive will break off given the slightest encouragement. Do not hook these drives up until you are through shoving all your cables and wiring harnesses around.

Darn near foolproof

AMD Athlon 64 3000+ - Athlon 64 Venice Single-Core 1.8 GHz Socket 939 Processor - ADA3000BPBOX
AMD Athlon 64 3000+ - Athlon 64 Venice Single-Core 1.8 GHz Socket 939 Processor - ADA3000BPBOX

Pros: This item comes with the appropriate heatsink/fan assembly. Open the socket, match the triangle on the chip to the triangle on the socket, close the socket, snap on the heatsink, plug in the fan, done!

Cons: Costs more than a trusty old 486 chip.

Overall Review: Works with Fedora Core 5 x86_64.
