Is the 2TB drive your porn drive? SSD have gotten cheap enough that I might skip the 2TB hard drive unless you have a real need for it right now.

LMAO, no that's why we have the internet. 

 

It's really just so I have room for like all of the things that I need to store that don't need super fast data transfer rates. Family photos, music that I'm working on, videos etc.

Only problem is nowadays thanks to our stupid supreme court ruling from a couple of years ago he's stuck with a ~$110 sales tax too. So 2070 Super might be the highest he can go on that $1300 budget.
