Here you go - Samsung F3 500GB That should do it I think. Have'nt really calculated, but should be well within your budget Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer calguyhunk August 11, 2010 4:14:53 PM OK...forgot the PSU - OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W. If you don't need modular - Corsair TX Series 650W. (Better choice IMO) Both are SLI / Xfire ready.
