My System Specs


Yes, definately put a SSD in there. The quality and budget of this build really screams that you put in an Intel 520 Series 240GB. It really is the cream of the SSD crop right now and would be an excellent (albeit pricey) addition to your build.

If you're hitting the ceiling of your budget, I suppose a move to a Crucial M4 256GB SSD would be a much more reasonable drive to put in (not quite as nice/fast as the Intel drive, but probably the best 'bang for the buck' drive out there).

Oh, and if you let them, local computer stores will rape you on prices. Try to find one that will pricematch with NCIX or NewEgg. Otherwise you're better off going with the big online retailers and paying shipping (buy all your components at once at one retailer and you'll vastly reduce shipping price).

HTPC: Z77A-G45; 3770K; Zalman FX70; 2x4GB Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz; MSI GTX960; 2x 128GB Crucial M4 SSD; 4TB WD Red, 2x 2TB WD Green; Corsair RM650I; Corsair Carbide 600C;
Son's Rig: M5A97; FX8350; CNPS20LQ; 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz; Powercolor 7950; 250GB Crucial MX200; 320GB WD Black HDD; SPI 700W; Bitfenix Shinobi;
