    Do you already own that 256GB SSD? I didn't put a hard drive in here because I wasn't sure if you had that or not. There isn't any reviews on this board yet for the fact it was just released less than a week ago. This build allows you to over clock and it allows you to add a second card later on.

    I don't know how much hard drive space you need. tbh Iv'e yet to ever fill up a 500GB hard drive, but they have the Seagate 1TB 64MB cache going for $74.99 and free shipping @ amazon or you can pick up a WD Blue 500GB there for a decent price also. I would stick with the monitor you have for now. I mean I cant see any reason to move up to a 1920 x 1080 atm. When you get an extra $140 then look at this one down below but for now I would stick with what you have.
