the one you have in mind the GS 600 is for approx 78$ and the Antec 650 is for ~65$ and more or less GS 600 is 80 plus certified and the antec 650 is 80plus bronze certified and i suggested you a 650 watt PSU as you have a SLi support motherboard and you can always just upgrade it thumb.gif

I'm not sure why you would want to use that GS PSU when you can have the 550W capstone for about the same price.

Avoid that ST2000DM001 HD that Tarun recommended like the plague.

The SSD I suggested went out of stock a couple hours ago, for an extra $40 you can have the 240GB version of the same drive... Maybe that would be big enough that you could skip a mechy drive all together? Otherwise I would probably go with a Crucial M4 128GB for $90.

As an alternative to the Rosewill Challenger: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112238
With the promo code that's a pretty nice case for $54.

Why?

I second the Capstone, solid PSU, great price.

There have been versions of the ST2000DM001 sold with 3 x 667MB platters, and versions sold with 2x1TB platters, there is also evidence to support that other changes were made to the model. There's no way to know what you are going to get and the performance varies from very good for a mechy drive down to levels that would have been considered good 3 years ago (relatively slow by todays standards). Add to that a high DOA rate and poor reliability trending and I would not be using it in any build.

I've come to a stand still. You have all posted builds that interest me but, you all also are criticizing each others builds. I feel like I don't have enough knowledge to make an unassisted decision at the moment. Can anyone help me out?
