Soild State Drives are the best. Love them, they cooler, quiter, less power hungery and the speed... I will never go back... Green tech and Performance tech it kills the HDD bottel neck.

For many people saving Time and Power is what they want. also Capsity is over rated, Its like judging a car by the size of its fuel tank. That said the Weakness of the SSD is its capsity but for many none gamers 240gb is enough.

That's a good build, but he would prefer not ordering online, hence why I put down Canada computers as the only website as there is one in the local area. (not to sound like a D bag)

http://www.ncix.ca/ is the site i used. I could have swarn I Copy pasted that and not the .com... Altho it apears I didn't for which I appolgise. You will have put those in at they're site and put in your and use your Post code see what the postage is like. i3* 1155** with HDD will loose to i5 1155 with SSD.

I trust Gigabyte and Asus alot more than Asrock personally every board I buy is from Asus or Gigabyte I can only recommend them. Asrocks and I have only had two incounter one good (all be it on the cheepest budget ever $120 mostly recycled parts) and one very very bad (Z68 for me the were issues and it all went wrong).

_____
*provided theat they don't release some i3 3XXXk... Which they dont plan to as far as I know. Four cores generally beat 4 treads on the same socket at simalar clocks.
** Dont get too Stuck on the consept of a gen3 core it wont help in most cases, Gen3 was a good thing for highend graphic or the mobile sector not really a big change for most low-mid level users.
