  1. 1. Native SATA/USB 3.0, 8/8 CF still @ $95

    2. Consider that 650TX comboed with Samsung F3 1TB

    3. After market cooler?
  2. Best answer
    Alternatively : $1098AR with the LCD u picked out
  3. All good replies so far.

    In general - I'd get the samsung spinpoint f3 vs the hard drive you have listed.

    I'd swap that cpu for something with a c3 stepping or the $199 hex core.

    I'd buy this better power supply for less $
