You could switch out that Hitachi for a Spinpoint F3 and go with a faster drive for the same price

I think this is some form of the final build I want. I realize I did not hold true to price/performance, but there were certain things I just "wanted". I initially didn't want an SSD, but I think I am going to go for it for the OS and a few programs. I'll probably pick up a Blu-Ray drive soon, a bit undecided. In general, I'd rather keep Blu-Rays to my TVs, but that might change.

I think that would be a lot better too, but its already 100$ over his budget, but if he can afford it he should definietly get it!
