You'll have to use your existing enclosure, and also buy another, higher capacity harddrive to put all your downloads, as the SSD won't be big enough.
On the plus side, you'll have a nice snappy system with that SSD!
Honestly does he need 8 GB? I think 4 is rather perfect for his tasks, but then again the pricing gap between the two are small haha.

But yes the SSD he suggested is pretty great since I'm sure you won't need much space, and you'll see how fast it goes!

Also do you already have a Operating system DVD? To be specific a 64-bit Windows Operating system DVD? (Suggest getting Windows 7 or 8 for the best experience with the SSD, since XP doesn't seem to work well with SSD.)

Also if you're looking for the same parts but cheaper here you go (of course the shipping costs doesn't come into account).
