My System Specs


Your link in your first post to what I'm assuming was supposed to be the Fractal case is actually linked to some Memory.

The WD RED drive that you picked is actually designed for use in a NAS server system. I'm not sure how well they work in a desktop system.

For $10 more, you can get a Seagate Barracuda 3TB HDD - $128.99. This drive is the 1TB per platter drive that actually has very decent performance for a spindle drive.

As far as an SSD goes, the favorite around here for price/performance is the Crucial M4 128GB SSD - $104.99 at NCIX right now.

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;
