both of those seems better and not to be as much of a waste of money as the couple of things you had before which would've had to knock your price down a bit

Ok this is what i have, and it seem i can't get that case. It's going to be to big for my desk.
I will have to go with a MID-tower.

Also should i even get a SSD? 60 or 80g for the OS and main files?

I'd get a 90gb or 120gb...but if it's between 60 and 80gb, get 80gb.

No. The newest graphics cards have 2.1, but the motherboards still have 2.0...not sure why. The 2.1 graphics cards still work just fine on the motherboards with 2.0.

For the memory, the timings are different. The model number ending with C8 is faster than the model ending in C9.

As for the SSDs, which reviews have you been reading? I wouldn't trust all of them...

Yeah, the SSD looks a little iffy on this one. I'm not a fan of it's rating.
