Judging from the title of his post, I'd assume not.

Looks pretty good. Although, if you can swing it why not get another 250gig hdd and go raid 0? Just an idea...

Thats a nice system, especially for a non overclocking route! It will provide you excellent performance especially for the price! I second purchasing another 250 gig Hd if you can! Take pictures of your build and post back.
