I think I would change the case and PSU, avoid Sandforce drives, and get low profile RAM.

A little bit over but I included a better case, SSD, and PSU. Motherboard is about the same, kept the same GPU, and added a 1TB HD.

I like G-unit's build, but OP says he already has HDD, ODD, and HSF covered, so I would stick with a 240GB+ SSD and maybe drop the rest into an even nicer case .

although g-units build is money it seems he pulled some of his C/P shenanigans again lol so i put something together extremely similar however is much more catered to what you asked for in the OP.

What shenanigans? :heink:
