eVGA and Seagate have excellent customer service and RMA departments. One persons bad experience vs a whole slew of documented (forums, websites) good experiences including many of my own.
To the OP, I only linked a 120GB SSD. A 240GB SSD would have been way over your budget.
The blower style coolers are the best in 2 aspect.
1: They guarantee reference desinged cards meaning you can put any type of aftermarket cooling if you desire without the wonder of possible problems.
2: They blow the heat out the back of your case rather than back in the case. You want this instead of buying expensive fans to keep the rest of the case cooler for the extra heat being dumped into it.
Why yes I did chuckles, I already know seagate for too long, yeah the hard drives are fine after so long it will run and does conk out on you.
I expect them to last for atleast a good year or 2, not somewhat months after install and omg its dead ??
Also western digital is pretty quick to replace your item as long as you have your "facts" "documents" and receipts right.
That green one will hold him steady, mine has lasted for 5 years, couldnt be anymore pleased than that.
Same goes for galaxy, I prefer he went with it, in my opinion they perform better than some evga based cards.
Not going to spec or nanny pick which is best for any users.
Based on evgas details and galaxy's he won't miss much action at all.
He has a wolverine on his hands when he builds it.
Lastly reviews, forums tech-support or what not, people do have problems with their new builds.
Mostly it isn't them not unless they build stupidly and blindly without thinking or asking for help.
Being here and elswhere posting on the net, I have seen many more problems arise from popular manufacturers.
Take some time out and do some home work, and you'll begin to understand what I mean. :/
