Er ... this actually costs around £1080 (around $1700). I was looking at the price without VAT. My question still stands though.

Are you sure you want a 120GB Hard drive? Seems small for a PC.

It's a 120GB solid state drive for installing the OS and the game I play most often, plus a 1TB hard drive for data.
