mobo: Asrock K8Upgrade-NF3 (754)
dvd: Samsung SH-W162C

graphics: GeCube R950L
harddrive: Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 200 GB

I have your memory and hard disk.

The memory is very silent in operation ;)

The disk is a bit clicky when busy, but otherwise quite quiet. I bought Seagate because the 120Gb disk I put in my TiVo is near silent - this disk is marginally louder.
