Im pretty set on wanting to do a SSD for my OS, with a smaller hard drive, between 150-300 GB.
What im not set on is:
-Going intel over amd
-Case, the reviews on this say its good but i know there is alot of room to drop the price in this category.
-Power supply, I would like a gold rated one but im not sure if 550W is enough. Also dont want to spend over 100$ on one .
Any suggestions on improvements to lower cost to between 800-850$, or even lower if comparable?
