Hi everyone,

Feeling pretty confident about this build after getting plenty of advice and reading the forums/articles. Just need a last nudge and review before pulling the trigger. Thoughts?

And before you ask, yes, I only want a 256gb SSD. I store all my photos on external drives and will only have about three games on this setup along with Windows 7. Music is streamed from Pandora. Keeps it fresh.
