SSD: http://www.microcenter.com/product/402607/840_Pro_Serie...

HDD: http://www.microcenter.com/product/347355/WD_Black_1TB_...

These are the two drives I use in most of my builds. Both are high performance and high reliability. You might find a drive a few dollars cheaper, but you won't regret the quality and performance of the drives.

+1 gotta get the WD Black. The only ones left that still do 5yr warranty. Gotta keep buying these to send the message that a 2yr hard drive warranty is not acceptable

Isn't 128GB of SSD little? and they are good for gaming right?


You need about 50GB initially to install Win7 and then you can take it down to about 30GB. That will leave you space for some games that you want to put on it. I get by with a 64Gb SSD.
