  1. Ohh, they upgraded the SG05 to 450W. :>

    The HD6950 wont fit though, a GTX560Ti is much shorter however and offers similar performance.

    $10 on the k is $10 down the drain, unless you want to sell it.

    SSD wise, the SF-based dives are much better than the Marvell ones, either one in these would be my suggestion: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100008118%20600038519%20600038484&IsNodeId=1&bop=And&Order=PRICE&PageSize=20

    You may be able to find the HDD cheaper on Amazon, and perhaps another brand also, newegg's down for me :<

    Pretty good other than that.

    According to a review on newegg the 6950 fit in his sg-05, granted it was only with 1/2 cm to spare but the 560 ti does look better so i will make that change

    Fine then the i5-2500 it is, was going to hold out for a z motherboard but not going to wait

    K will go with the Marvell SSD

    Stuck with a Seagate, wife use to work with forensic tech and she swears by seagate or maxtor....despises WD
