Comments: For storage I went with with just a 256gb SSD because in the 4 years I've owned my current build. I haven't even reached 200gb yet and that's with a bunch of games I never play that could be uninstalled. I don't really torrent or anything so I figure if I really need the storage I'll buy a hdd later. Also not sure about the case, my current build has a pretty nice lian li case but I don't want to wrap too much money up in it this time.
