  1. I noticed you do not have a storage HDD. You only have the SSD. I would think about something like this:

    Samsung by Seagate Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ/ST500DM005 500GB $69
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152181

    Do you have an operating sytem?
  2. i have windows 7 home premium and hdd look's good.
  3. Good build and good luck
  4. My advice is to get a Phenom II 965 instead of the FX-4170. Yes, I'm an "AMD guy", I'm telling you, the Phenom II is s better CPU with a more consistent performance record.
