I myself have a 128GB C300. I'm not sure if the 64GB SSD's even come with 64GB or if its 64,000,000,000 bytes = 59.6GB. Assuming it comes with ~60GB of actual space, Windows 7 Professional takes up, what, 20GB (if I recall correctly)? That leaves us with just under 40GB of space. Install Photoshop and Office 2010 and you'll be left with approximately 20-30GB of space (again, I'm not sure how much space Photoshop CS5 and Office take up). Assuming the user is smart enough to move the default user location to the data drive to save space, this leaves around 15GB of free space. Install some other programs and you are left with, in the best case scenario, 7-12GB of space. Hardly breathing room, no?

Math Fail. 20-30 does not equal 15.

I have 33 GB free on mine. And Windows 7 Pro takes up 16.4 GB.

Okay, I wasn't sure how much Pro takes up.
And you're the one failing: I meant 20-30 as in 20 to 30. Wow.

You know what, go prove your idiocy elsewhere please.

While the debate on ssds is nice you brought up another question. If I'm just using the PC for games do I need to spend the extra $30 on win 7 pro or is home efficient?

Home is more than enough unless you need an XP virtual machine. Put the $30 to use elsewhere.

A Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB should only be ~$10 more than that 500GB WD drive.
I would go for a CM Hyper 212+ instead of the Hyper N 520. You can add a 2nd CM Blade Master 120 PWM fan for <$10 if you really wanted to.

I prefer Win7 Pro for remote desktop, it's much better than VNC, etc. Home Premium would work if you don't need remote desktop or XP mode (never used it).

Also, I would go with a Corsair 750TX instead. It's cheaper and possibly better. 750W is more than enough for GTX 560 Ti SLI down the road.

NZXT Phantom is really hit or miss and mostly personal preference. If you like it, get it.

The Hyper N520 is a nice cooler it's what I had before I got this V6 and the n520 comes with a push/pull dual fan config and it's only $29.99-34.99 not $29.99 + additional costs so idk about the 212+ if you have to buy another fan but w/e.

750 TX is not as good as the XFX I recommended based upon what I was told in the PSU section. They were asking if 750W was enough for a second 560ti down the road.

CM Hyper 212+ w/stock single fan is better than Hyper N520 w/stock dual fans. Adding a 2nd fan on Hyper 212+ is optional and will yield a 1-3C drop.

The XFX is nice and if you don't mind waiting/hoping for the rebate, it's a great deal. The Corsair 750TXV2 is $20 cheaper up front and $10 cheaper after MIR. While the corsair unit may not be as good as the XFX unit, it's no slouch and has the same 5 year warranty.

I was pointing out that you went from 20 to 30 free to 15 magically. 20 to 30 does not equal 15. Do I need to do a proof for you?

As far as PSUs go i cant do a non modular. My last build had a non modular and it drove me nuts. The XFX black ed. 750w is nice but their 850w is even nicer and only +$10 on the hale90-750W i think i might be willing to give up the sleek white psu for a better preforming 850W.

For cooling i was looking for something that wouldn't break the bank and it was a toss up between the CM n520 and the CM V6 still haven't made up my mind yet probably will wait until the day i buy and see where the total price falls, or whats on sale next week.

With the Mobo im still on the fence with the p67 deluxe but only because the price. i would love to have the integrated bluetooth. I have a nice set of Motorola bluetooth headphones to use with it. (anyone know if you can sync your smart phones with the pc with that?)

CM 212+ would be fine for a cooler. I think there is actually a Bluetooth overclocking feature for smartphones.
