hi im new to these forums. i had decided to build the notebook myself, and even chose to use the z71v model as my base, so imagine how happy i was to come across this site. i decided to follow most of what was listed as recomended parts but i would like to change a couple of things.
1) can i use a different hard drive than the one listed ? i would prefer to go with hitachi 80gb 7200 rpm. it has interface of ata-6. Please help i dont have much time, im ordering everything this saturday, and i need to know that if i put this in my laptop, will it work? also would instalation be any different? Link for more specs

2) i would prefer to get 2gb on my notebook instead of what is listed. i was going to use corsair 2 x 1gb chips for my computer.
3) what kind of router should i get? i have cable at home.
thanks in advance, you guys are great, finally meet some people who can think outside of the box.
