The flooding in south east asia had driven the price up over 150%. I think by late spring early summer the price of a 1tb should be back down to 65 70 bucks.
^That. But, if he can't afford an SSD, a faster HDD will work.

I know, but he said he needs to save up for the build, and if he needs it sooner than later, he could always drop the SSD and add it later. In which case he would need to buy a faster HDD than the Caviar Green.
