Total = $1103 w/o tax/shipping

What do you think?
Should I go for the OCZ Agility 2 60GB instead of the X-25M G2 80GB (both $190)

Also, I am not sure about my motherboard choice. Does it work with the RAM?

I don't know offhand how they compare, but I own the X-25M G2 80GB. It's my first SSD, and it was worth every penny. :)

Thats a good gigabyte motherboard.

I dont see any issues with the build. For the same price get the larger SSD.
