  1. I'm budget minded. Here's my recommended list:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157330 (free gskill ram with purchase; I use it)

    Get an ssd if you don't have one and go with a smaller capacity regular drive; 1 tb were only $50 the other day at amazon or newegg.
  2. Can't buy from Amazon or Newegg unfortunately. I'm in Australia.
    Also, I was thinking that I could spend more since I got the graphics card free so I went for 27 inch instead of 24 monitor. (buying from pccasegear which is in aus)

    Also, why should I use an ssd?
  3. They're quiet, no moving parts, and windows boots up in about 15 seconds from a cold start. I'll never go back to a regular drive; I don't need the space. Use a small capacity ssd for a boot device and downloading large files. 60 gb is enough.
