Whats the best storage setup with ~$230? I already have a 1tb external. I'm planning to frap also.

Is it okay with just having a SSD in the computer and no internal HD? Just an external 1tb?

I'm probably going with the 650watt instead of 750 watt.

Also, is there any heatsink better? Such as arctic cooling, v8, etc?

SSD is faster than any mechanical hard drive period. Its more than write or read speeds, but seek speeds as well. You would be ok doing it that way, but you better get a 128gb ssd at least cause ur gonna want all ur programs there too etc. with just music, video, and documents on ur external. But what u can do for 230 is a Crucial 64gb C300 and a Samsung F3 1tb and u'd be set.

The best heatsink is the Prolimatech Megahalem
Systems like the Corsair H50/ H70 are also great options and work pretty well if u set them up right.

Best stock air heatsink would belong to the NH-D14 or the Silver Arrow in terms of overall cooling power.

Hey guys, I'm back to build the 2600k computer now since the motherboards are back. I don't know when they came back, but I checked just now. The list has been updated.

One question:
Why is gigabyte's 1155 motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-476-_-Product

is cheaper than their 1366?

1155 is cheaper to build, cheaper chipset, no triple channel memory to support, ect.

Got that covered.

Can anyone tell me the difference between these two boards and is it worth getting the more expensive one?
