Still weird how it's slightly cheaper. I guess go with the 9400 if it's a few bucks cheaper, haha.

You can have mine You were a big help. Haha.

Could I downgrade the HDD to Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3250310AS 250GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives




I don't know if I need 600GB and if I do need more I could get an external, add another HDD (if thats possible), or just buy a new (bigger) one.

you could down grade but the seagate has less cache, so it will be slower.

If you're going to get the 250, at least get the one with a 16mb cache: Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3250410AS 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb&#47;s Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

But I'd recommend getting at least the 500gb one here: Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST3500320AS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb&#47;s Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives
It has a much higher cache, and overall is a better drive for only 15 bucks more than that 250gb you were looking at.
