Default help me become cheaper

You could shave off 300 bucks by going from a 20.1" to a 19", which would be quite a bit.

EDIT: 19" is still freaking huge and enough to make everyone jealous

The WD Raptor is pretty expensive, running around 160 bucks. Instead of a Raptor and an SATA you could just get 2 SATA's, unless you really want that speed.
