If you still can, switch that psu for a better one, I really don't like the one you have picked out.

the firmware issue has been sorted.

I have had the same hard drive in my current rig for over a 15 months now and it is still going smooth.

new update.

Still do not have my computer; apparently the motherboard and RAM were holding up the shipment from the suppliers warehouse; I have a rather large LAN this weekend so I hope to bring my new rig; 2 days for the parts to arrive but unfortunately even though New Zealand is smaller than California they still dont know how to ship things quickly LOL.
