No.

Missing SSD. Windows 7 Professional. Rush service where no rush is necessary. Bit low on the ram (see my system; I upgraded the ram only when I run out, and I started at 16GB!), given the lack of an SSD you'll be hurting when you encounter hard page faults.

Seems you're watercooling just for the sake of water cooling. (i5 doesn't need it)

^Sounds about right except for Windows Pro. What's your reasoning?

With my other family member's computers, I find myself trying to use features (mainly remote desktop, group policy, the 16GB cap on RAM..) which aren't available with the home premium SKU.

But yeah. I'd totally wait another 2 days on shipping just for an SSD.
