I'd prefer a HDD, is there any way to fit one in there?

The case you are using Supports up to 3 3.5" Devices, so yes you can. In fact the SSD comes with the kit to install into such a bay.

HDD's may be more cost effective, but they run and hide compared to the performance of an SSD. Ever a Smaller version at 32GB will Stomp all over a spindle driven HDD. Buy Both. Setup your HDD first, then Clone it to your SSD. You be the judge.

As far as what HDD to use, Pick one that fits your budget.

Would you recommend a 128 gig SSD over a 500 gig HDD?
