  1. Change SSD to a Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 120GB SSD. It is $40 cheaper and more reliable. Use the $ to get Corsair 400R Case.

    It's actually more expensive :S but I will look at it anyways. Why would you prefer that case over what I've selected?

    oh, I googled it and found a different one...my bad.
  4. 400R should have a bit better airflow, and I don't see anywhere else the money could go, unless you want to pocket it. :P
