I noticed in your spreadsheet you have $200.00 for the CPU that cost $800+. Whats up with that?

Bought off inter retail edge for $200 i was going to get the 160gig ssd too for $219 but meh save up a bit; they always have great deals.

My only suggestion is to check the mobo and see if there is a better option/brand. From reading reviews on that specific board, lots of DOA's and manufacturing defects common among different buyers, like bent pins and damaged sockets for the CPU. From the reviews, it seems an RMA on that won't be covered if they decide to say it was you who damaged it, but multiple people have had the same manufacturing defects for the same board, so we know its not 100% user error upon installations.

If you have the money go with an SSD, reason being you will get more performance out of your box.

Plus buy x1 1TB HDD for backup as well.

For the moment, I am happy with my WD Raptor hard drive, it has served me really well.
