  1. Why the Western Digital Scorpio Black 160GB in a desktop?
    The capacity is tiny and it would make more sense to get a 1TB or 2TB drive to complement your SSD.

    The Celeron G540's 3D performance on the integrated video card will be pretty poor. I assume you won't be using this for gaming.

    i forgot to add that the g540 is just temporary. Ill be upgrading to i5-3570k in a few months, this is pretty much just a start ill upgrade my few weak parts as i can afford to. thanks
