do you reckon the 7970 should be better than the 670?


I like NVIDIA but the Radeon cards are just better at the moment so go with 7970

Don't worry about the hard drive being 2.5", the case has tool-less hard drive racks with 2.5" capability. Also, the 8gb flash memory will contain the operating system, making your computer boot time faster and some programs that get stored there.

It has some flash memory (SSD) and some traditional memory (HDD). The one I mentioned has 8gb of SSD and 1 Terabyte of HDD in one drive. It is more efficient because the operating system can go on the 8gb of the SSD, along with some important programs, and the 1 terabyte can be used for other data that is not frequently accessed. It allows you to have more storage space per pound. Its not like people actually need a complete flash storage drive; more than 16 gb is a waste of space for the price you pay.

Also, you will be quite satisfied with the Corsair case; the Fractal r4 and the Corsair are similar in design, with cable organizers and tool-less hard drive racks, except, from what I saw in the pictures, the plastic in the Corsair looks relatively higher in quality than the Fractal. I own a 400r, and it is awesome, but I think it would be better for you to get a 500r because of the variety of fan expansion areas, among other things.
