Both the Radeon 7970 and 128GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD I already bought from my brother's friend for a total of $150 (he's building himself a new computer with an AMD processor and an NVIDIA Titan). So, for a grand total of around $750, what do you guys think?

    I was originally planning on getting a 7850 but when my brother's friend mentioned he wanted to get rid of his 7970 and Samsung 840 Pro 128GB SSD for $150, I couldn't pass on that! He plans on building an AMD gaming machine with a Geforce Titan and a bigger SSD.

    Oh boy. I sure hope the real Steam Box doesn't cost that much! Nice specs, especially the SSD and 7970.
