There is the build I'm looking at getting. I had a few questions before i sent in the order.
First, is it worth the extra $20 for the Caviar Black with a 32MB Cache rather than the Caviar Blue with a 16MB Cache?
Second, I want to run the Intel Smart Response with my SSD but i wanted to make sure I could install Windows on it and still have it run the Smart Response? Also, should I get the 120GB or could i get away with getting a 64GB?
Also, should I get the GeForce GTX 560 or the AMD Radeon HD 6870?
Finally I wanted to know if i should go with a Professional, Ultimate or just the Home version of Windows 7? Finally is the SP1 the right package to get?
In my opinion, Caviar black is not worth it. Yes it is slightly faster, but you have an SSD so that doesn't really matter.
You want 120gb+ on the SSD if you are installing windows there. They fill up fast - I only have a couple games on my 128 Crucial M4. (EDIT FULL DISCLAIMER: all the other programs are on a caviar black ... so maybe I should eat my words above?) Not sure about smart response, but I think you might have to choose one or the other with smart response...
Get an OEM copy of windows 7 home for ~$80-90. There isn't really much more of use in the other versions. Get whatever is newest, but it upgrades anyway.
Antec 30% is a good choice for a budget build. I have a 300 Illusion and it cools well.
You can get cheaper ram, there is no way you are overclocking high enough to take advantage of 1866. 1600 is plenty. I have the cas 8 gskill ripjaw set and they work well.
No real need for the bigger PSU, but it certainly cant hurt. More importantly, I do recommend the highest efficiency you can afford among Seasonic (the best), Corsair or Antec.
You only need a good 500 watt PSU for an i5 and a GTX560. I'd recommend a Corsair TX650V2 if I knew I was not going to SLI or XF two video cards. The 650 only has 2 PCI power plugs, so you will not have many cables left over if you do not use a modular PSU.
The TX650V2 (built by Seasonic) is a newer design than the HX650.
