More about update computer build guys think
  1. not bad, as far as it goes.

    I personally don't like spending huge amounts on a case. (I'm cheap tho!) I like staying under $80 on cases, so CM 3xx seris, Antec 300 /illusion, rosewill challenger/destroyer, CM 690, etc.

    If you're going to get an SSD, get 60 GB minimum. I recommend the Mushkin Callisto, as the least expensive Sandforce controller out there.

    Kingwin is ok as a PSU.
  2. Ok ill look into the SSD, i already had the case (got it last year as an xmas gift) but i see your concern about spending a lot of money on a case. Myself personally i like to switch it up in terms of my case every so often i usually do not go above 170 when it comes to cases as i like to change them.
  3. Ok i have begun My new Build

    Here are the New parts i have installed already
