Hello xhackell;

What are the prices for Options 1 & 2?

For option 2: It's not a complete system ... what CPU? What graphics card?

Quite frankly, buying that much SSD storage is pretty much a complete waste of money.

Give us your budget, and let's go from there.

You think it's a good idea to put $700 worth of SSDs into a system worth about $450?

You really should think about some middle ground between a i7-2700k CPU and AMD E-350 Fusion APU.

Maybe an AMD A-8 Llano APU and it's AMD Radeon HD 6550D graphics IGP?

XD at using an E-350 and putting a lot of money into an SSD.

So you have how much money do you have to put into the system in USD?
What is the primary use of the system? And why build yourself?

I would go with your first system, drop the 2 big SSD's for a single 256(which would give you room for your OS and about 200g worth of games), and add a 1tb mechanical for a data drive. The 1000w power supply is also way overkill, you shouldnt need more than a 750w. That would also give you room to bump up to a much nicer video card, maybe a GTX 580 or AMD 7970, and stay within your budget.

And in a few months time - we'll probably be recommending different parts too.
Different CPU (Ivy Bridge) and different vidoe cards (Radeon HD 7xxx or Geforce 6xx)

But i would lyk to stick to Sandy Bridge and Radeon 6xxx(if) or Geforce 5xx.
If they really is out it will be expensive :(

Just get a PS2 for $99 for games. LOL
Seriously, just for watching videos (even 1080P)
an Intel-i3 would do.

In the US you can build a decent i3 machine for less than $450.
An A8 could handle some light gaming if you don't want to get a graphics card.
