    Buy this instead - it has a better SSD, and it has a power supply which leaves enough wattage for potential SLI down the road. You can replace the case with one which is to your liking. :P

    Hope this helps! :D
  2. Lucky you on the Micro Center, woulda saved me about $150. I'm still learning, so I'll leave the advice to the experts. Happy building!
  3. Corsair 500R is better case and only $70 (MSRP = $140)

    Might wanna size that PSU for future SLI
