Very true. You will be very hard to come by a harddrive, SSD or not, that will actually utilize the bandwidth that SATA III will give you. The only drive I know of that does is the C300 by Crucial, and that will add about $500 to your build. With a non-SSD, you're probably paying a price premium and getting no benefit from it.
Have you checked out the ASUS VW266H? That's what I'll be getting with my build. After MIR, $279 for a 1920x1200 25.5" monitor. Also, the 930 is only very, very slightly better than the 920 (probably unnoticeable at the level you'll be able to overclock either of them to) so if Microcenter has them in stock, I would consider saving $75 and going with the 920.
With the monitor, i think i will stick with VK246, a built-in webcam is what i want, and 24'' is way too good for me already. I know the speaker won't be very so bright, but imma buy myself a nice 5.1 Altec system . Im a music geek
For the I7, my microcenter has the 920 for $220+ without tax, while the 930 is only $15+ more i think, and possibly 930 is a slightly but noticably better if i overclocked it to 4.0ghz or more.

The (only) review that I have read for the i7 930, so far, seemed to show that the i7 930 got to 4.2Ghz more easily than the i7 920 and that it performed noticeably better as a result. The review was at bit-tech if you want to go and have a look.
