Where are you going to buying your components? Newegg.com or .ca?

Yeah, I was just searching your parts on PriceGrabber.com and couldn't really get any better deals than what you already posted. The price of the WD hard drive isn't bad. You could always go with a 500 or 640GB to save some money there, depends on whether you think you will need the space or not.

I hear NCIX is doing pricematches for the states now, plus they have a free shipping promo going on to celebrate their new American warehouse. If you don't have a Microcenter near you, you can still get Microcenter prices apparently.

A 64GB SSD is sufficient for a Windows 7 boot drive. You may wish to move the 'Documents and Settings' and ProgramData folders to an HDD partition and use the saved space for some apps. There are different ways to accomplish this that have been previously documented.

With those folders and the pagefile moved to other partitions, my Windows 7 boot partitions only have around 25GB or less of occupied space on each of my systems. The optimal location for the pagefile is situational, but I usually prefer it off my SSDs and in its own partition.
