DO NOT BUY a WESTERN DIGITAL HARD DRIVE!!!! Seagate is one of the most Reliable hard drives out there...!! Last year I purchased a WD 80 gig drive (7200 rpm's) and used it as my "C" drive and it Crashed within 8 months. I am now using (2) Seagate hard drives: C = 120 gig and D = 200 gigs. I have owned the 120 gig for over a year and it is by far the quietest, efficient and reliable hard drive I have ever used.
I'm running an AMD Sempron 3000+ processor, have tested it against over a 1,000 other systems and mine exceeds normal performance. I am using AMD's CPU monitor & have watched my CPU usage go from 0 to 100 percent just starting & using this program.......can anyone tell me how to correct this???
