It's worth it affording a 240gb SSD, preferably not from Kingston but Crucial or SanDisk/WD Green.

 

If it's any cheaper you can get the TX550M instead, all that aside it's a very great performing gaming rig.

i agree...everything should be priced well in this build...but the storage doesn't make any sense...get at least a 240GB SSD so that you can install windows and your most commonly used programs and drivers on it!

I have a leftover 1TB Hard Drive i was planing on giving him for game storage and such, but i see ur point. The SSD might be to small

yes it is...it might not be at first, you CAN install windows on this and drivers and stuff...but overtime with windows updates and just the normal clutter it will run out of space really quickly as a boot drive...and also you can find 240GB SSD for just a little bit more money...it's worth it my man ;)
