In-ear is a question of taste. You like it or hate it... I can only wear those and some Sony's that cost over 200$ (>.<) and feel comfortable with them on for extended periods of time.
Hard drives are fast enough yes, SSD would be better though, but it's going to bust your budget by another 60$

But you're off 60$ with that.
I recommend sleeving from Nils @ http://en.mdpc-x.com/mdpc-sleeve.htm , it's expensive but really worth the looks
I'd say take a look around the mod section here, the 922 comes in gray inside, you might want to make it all black, looks nicer
If you don't want to take any of my over-priced/crazy ideas, I think you're pretty much set
Good ideas actually. Usually when I go custom on things something usually breaks or takes a REAALLLY looooooOOOng time. Painting might not be a goooood idea. xD
Man, I would love to try out a SSD, but I think i'll wait on that. See how raid-0 wd blacks do. (raid-0 is where it saves the same info on both drives eh? increasing speed?).
I recently started OC'ing my RAM. I noticed that with my timings at 5-5-5-15-20, I can't take the RAM past 1066. This might just be my RAM, maybe others can comment on it.
