great feedback guys

THanks

A couple questions
1) the research im doing shows the Samsung drives to be the top rated drives - why are you recommending the intel ? they are close to same price Samsung has better reviews and is a little bigger

2) the corsair case is cheap but its not known for being quiet - again Im not a gamer
maybe this

3) dont really need mirroring - Ive got offsite backup to solve that but if its in the budget - I have almost a TB of customer data on the Black drive -With new SSD announced today maybe prices will drop and Ill get 2

4) I like the heat sink idea - dont need the cooling but better cooling means slower fan speed = less noise


I7-3770 - 3.4Ghz Processor - $289.98 from Amazon
Corsair Vengeance 2x8GB DDR3 1600mhz RAM - $73.74 from Amazon
ASUS P8Z77-V LGA 1155 Motherboard - $189.99 from Amazon
2x Intel 520 Series 240GB 2.5" SSD in RAID1 - $214.99 x2 = $429.98 samsun similar price

Corsair Obsidian Series 550D $129

Corsair TX550M Modular Power Supply - $89.99
Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus heatsink - $28.45

GTX 670 $380

Total: about 1250

Keep the ideas coming
