Hello,
This is a system that I am building for an entertainment system/light gaming/daily use.

Part list permalink: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/5b7I

CPU: Intel Core i3-2120 3.3GHz Dual-Core Processor ($115.99 @ SuperBiiz)
Motherboard: Biostar TZ68K+ ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($112.55 @ Newegg)
Memory: Kingston Blu 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($46.17 @ Compuvest)
Memory: Kingston Blu 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($46.17 @ Compuvest)
Hard Drive: OCZ Agility 3 60GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($59.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: XFX Radeon HD 6670 1GB Video Card ($69.99 @ Microcenter)
Total: $450.86

Need to know how to setup for best speed without overclocking? Will using a 7200rpm hard drive for bigger storage with the ssd using the rst caching be better or just using the ssd for system drive and the hard drive for storage use?

If your're a gamer and have limited budget ... get a MB ~ $7x ... and save the $6x to a better Video Card like 6850 / 6870....

If you have many thing you can use 60GB in the OS Drive and save all your personal data / user profile in the 7200rpm hd..

You really don't need 16 gb of ram. You can save money by getting a H61 motherboard and I would advise getting a ssd with at least 90 gb. Use the ssd as your primary os drive and have all the data/movies on the the HD. What's your budget,what is light gaming?
