My System Specs

Default I pulled the trigger

I appreciate all the help and advice given here. After much thought and gut wrenching I purchased the following items. Some choices were made because I just wanted it (like the i7 / 1366 option vs a i5 / 1156 option). Yes I could have saved money considering my likely use for it but I just wanted it. Some items were on sale. My first RAM choice was Muskin but the ones I wanted were not on Gigabyte's motherboard list of tested RAM and I just didn't want to get RAM and not have it work and I figured I could always change or upgrade later. The PSU choice is over sized but I figured it was easier to over size for future upgrades and the price difference between a 500 watt PSU and a 750 PSU wasn't much. I also wanted a modular PSU to help manage the cable mess. My plan is the OS and programs on the SSD and data on the HDD. If I have made any mistakes, I guess it is too late now. I am sure I will be posting a lot of questions once I get the goods.
Thank you HC!
