I told him I'd beat that deal even with a SSD so I was quick on the trigger when I saw the sale haha. Should still be a nice improvement over his mechanical drives.

Well I went ahead and bought the parts, as the RAM is now also on the frontpage of Slickdeals. A bit overkill on the case and PSU, but hopefully those are parts he'll keep (and save with on power bills) for years to come. Thank you all for your help! Glad to see after months of overclock.net neglect I didn't make any horrific errors in choosing parts haha.
Very nice!
That PSU I heard is very very good. It also is completely modular so sleeving the cables will not void your warranty I believe for Corsair.
I've also heard great things about that case. Have fun building in it!
