I'm waiting about 6 months for SSD's to shed a few bugaboos (Trim) and market to stabilize.

TRIM is a function that comes with Windows 7, some manufacturers have released updates that allow similar functionality for current OSes, but Windows 7 won't need them. If you really want an SSD today, the best choice is the OCZ Vertex 60GB. The intel G2 is better, but sold out everywhere, and their price is jacked way up.

I suggest a corsair 750TX or TP-750 over the 650TX so that you have enough power for crossfire in the future.

yah i was thinking to get the 750 it was only 20 bucks more. But i read somewhere it was overkill, then again better to be safe then sorry. Anyone have any comments about my ram selection? ocz has a bunch of different speeds ranging from 90 to 150. Are they really that different?
