Thank you I will surely keep this in mind.

My System Specs

Ahhh, never mind for the video card. It was a 7970 GHZ edition, not the GTX660. So, you're good to go with the 7850 if you like...

As to what JJThomp said, I'm in agreement. Replace the Caviar Blue with a 120Gb SSD for the moment, then save up and buy a storage drive a little later. As long as you don't download any media and store them on your SSD, you shouldn't run out of room just yet. But you WILL want to pick up a storage drive fairly soon.

I was actually thinking of either getting a seagate momentus XT 500GB, if SSD is not an option (budget).

Thanks Guys.
