Yes, SSD's do need to be bigger.
(The encoded video turned out to be about 3.2GB btw, with near zero loss in quality.
*looks at 32GB of RAM"
Meh, I've installed operating systems in a VM on a ramdisk, games are nothing. (Yes, games on a ramdisk is fun)
Also, 1TB SSD for $180? Heck ya, give me 4.
No need actually, most games these days do not save to the game folder but to your Users folder or the "cloud". With a fair SSD you could load up the game in a ramdisk in under a minute then enjoy no loading times for the duration of your play, then simply kill the ramdisk when done.
i dont know if anyone else said this but the prices are dropping like a rock one was on sale for ~ 500 not long ago

That kit I linked has a 35X pump and I would like to add 2 7950s and another rad to it eventually. I know the H220 pump is strong enough to take care of all those additional restrictions but I want to get a nice, strong pump right off the bat. With the H2O-X20 kit all I need to do is add a gfx card block and a front rad and I'm ready to rock. I've been back and forth for a while on it but I've pretty much settled on the H2O-X20 kit. I think it'll save me trouble in the long run.
also those pads are not worth it, esp for vrms 6mk/w is plenty for vrms i was going for the 17mk/w for my cards, btu poeople told me that it is not worth it unless you have golden cards. otherwise... you just wasting your monies, and i agree with them after thinking about it. my card 7970 with 6mk/w pads were maxing at 40 or less vrms and core. even @ 1.4v
it is a great kit. but yit does not have a mcpo35x pump. it is an apogee drive II check these 2 kits out they are beast and a heck of a buy http://www.swiftech.com/H2O-x20-Edge-HD.aspx
very similarly priced as well.i still rock mine, although eventually it will be moved to my wifes rig i also have the mcp35x dual pump . all 3 are in my system now. let me know if you have any questions
i HIGHLY recommend just using distilled + biocide ( ptnuke or iandh deadwater ), getting comp fittings, and qdcs ( you will thank me ), lastly get the cheap tubing from HD, you can get it for 7.99 ~ and it works great, it will help you to plan your loops, ( after using the stuff that comes with the kit ) swiftechs is much more soft and pliable ( which is good ) but until you want to drop the big monies that will save you some !~~

Here's a run I just did.
you may try gputweek or what ever asus's one is called i heard of people with asus cards can change voltage with it but no other program one of the many reasons i do not recommend asus 7xxx cardsWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

If you have MSI Afterburner right click on the icon/shortcut and select properties from the menu.
On the shortcut menu add at the end of the "target" line /xcl
(put a space before /xcl part) and click apply then ok.
Now double click the icon to start MSI afterburner. It will take a few seconds so be patient, but then a popup window will appear that tells you OC limits have been extended and you need to reboot.
Before you reboot and to save your self trouble, go back in ie: right click MSI icon and erase the /xcl
. Then reboot. viola you now have higher limits.
ALSO you could create a second MSI Afterburner Icon with the /xcl part and use it after each AMD update (you will need to each time you update your drivers from AMD Catalyst) so you don't have to worry about remembering the /xcl part nor having to go back and erase it each time.

fyi that is useless now. they put the option in settings "extend official overclocking limits" iirc
