Thats a few hundred dollars worth of parts you're looking for, there is no way you're going to get all that for $150. You might get them for $150 each but not $150 total.

I think I should start by telling you if you are using this for gaming, you don't need 16GB of RAM. The most intense games only can use up to 8GB at the moment. So you could save the money and use it toward your CPU. For the RAM though, I would go with GSkills.

For your CPU upgrade. The Intel i5 chips will start at about $200 and go up. I think you would very pleased with an i5 4670K which has an unlocked multiplier so you could over clock in the future. It runs $239. You could get the locked version so you can't overclock for $219 if you would rather save the money. I think the extra $20 is worth having the option to overclock.

Now for the faster booting of windows is really an easy solution. Go with a Samsung Evo 840 SSD. The 128GB version runs $89, and should be enough to fit windows and a few games on.

Here is a list of the parts I came up with.
CPU : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
SSD : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Case : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
RAM : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I will actually be purchasing that case at the end of the month. It comes in blue, red, and green. Good price for a good look. I will also be purchasing this fan controller as it looks awesome and has good functionality.

Hope this helped.

No problem dude.

Yes they do make a 258GB and 512 I believe. It just looks like Newegg.com is out of them or something.

I only have an 80gb in my rig and still have 25GB free. I have like 4 games installed on it but nothing fancy. Civ 5 is probably the largest game.
