My first was a 40GB intel and that still allowed one game and ms office on win7 with some room to spare, I ended up with a 120GB so I can keep a few games on the SSD, next will be 180-240GB just to go to a faster one than my corsair gen1 F120.
About matx cases, its so nice having power in a tiny rig. My non-pc friends would always trip out on my LED lights/fans and huge cases but with the TJ08-e its a sleeper, once I open the side panel and show em whats inside they trip out on how I fit everything inside a tiny case. Boy I want to add a side window biggrin.gif

I really want to get one, but I'm lazy and don't feel like another W7 install and configuration for the SSD and stuff. Also trying to stick to a ~$1000 budget for this build, but I'm not going to have the funds or time until I graduate from basic training in August, so depending on prices and what not my whole set-up might change. Think I'm going to stick with a mATX build though. thumb.gif

Oh man dude you can't build a rig these days. For real its the best upgrade your computer can get. I'd definitely find a way. And forget all that tweeking them its unnecessary.

/agree SSD is a requirement for computer these days:D I can live w/o a mechanical drive in the machine (external USB3 drive is plenty fast enough for storage purposes) but internal drive / OS drive MUST be SSD or you are just wasting all that $ by building a new machine:D it's like using bicycle wheels on a car.... you are limiting the performance of the car because the wheels cant handle the power. SSD = OS + everyday applications/games. everything else = external storage drive (yes that includes porn biggrin.gif )

Awesome can't wait to see how you do this. I am currently doing a loop on my tj08( 180mm rad just came) but I am just gonna go ahead and try to squeeze the EK 150 advance res(love the many options on that res) I had and see how it looks lol.

Its an expensive option but how about this.......

Silverstone FP58- slim drive mount ($25)- it will fit a slim dvd drive ($45) and four 2.5" drives. So it will basically easily fit the SSD and a 750GB 2.5" drive ($110)

That would free up the other 5.25" slot for a resivour. Its kinda what I have on my mind right now, I have a 500GB momentus XT sitting in an external enclosure I was gonna use but it almost seems too small since I have 288GB used up on my 1TB 3.5" HDD. Speeds are very close but the 1TB is a hair faster. Im thinking with the 4Gb of SSD storage my momentus xt might be faster than the 1TB in the end but whateva! Im LAZY about the swap haha.

OR

Just leave the 1TB and SSD at the bottom where it was meant to be, that would allow for the cd/dvd drive and resivour to sit up top thumb.gif Assuming the bottom of the radiator doesnt hit that location. Since its a 180mm Im wondering if it will clear instead of the 200mm some people use

oooh that slim drive bay looks nice. Pity nowhere in NZ stocks it . Also a decent slot dvd drive here will set you back around $100 NZD lol
