Welcome to TPU
thanks, i've been reading articles and forum posts for months, finally decided to join and post
use the SSD for the OS .. with the size of games today , two games and the SSD will be full,
i have 128GB Crucial M4 and it half full with only BF3 with all expansions and Windows 8 ..
Tennis, You should think about case upgrade for proper airflow. Even on a budget a good case can always lower temps. I would recommend the NZXT Source 210 Elite. NZXT makes these cases in Black and White

I've looked at it, it's about 1/2-1 Inches too big to fit where I keep my pc
Around 16.5 is the max I could fit, but 15.5-16 would be preferable
Hmm, might be a good thought, problem is it would require buying an OEM Copy of w7(yes I know I can transfer it over w/o a new Os, but I'd rather use a clean install if I do so)
If someone could find an ATX/mATX that is less than ~16.5-17 in deep I'd likely jump on that. The only one ive found is the fractal core 1000 and idk if that's a good enough case to warrant the upgrade
You can use your current key with a new drive. If it doesn't activate automatically, you can call microsoft and get that fixed easily enough, they even built in the list of phone numbers you need to call into the activation software already present on your machine. It's still the same PC, for Microsoft is cool with you doing things like a fresh install on a new drive within the same PC.
Still applies to Windows8, too...I've checked by actually doing it.
About that key.......didn't come with my Lenovo(still using the OS it came with)
You can use it on new hardware, too, as long as it isn't present on the old hardware.
Basically, if you have a key you are using now, and won't use it in the future, but will buy another.. don't. You don't own Windows.. you own the right to use it on a single PC, and that key code is your certificate of that ownership.
you can even install it twice on a PC, whatever you want to do, as long as the key is only present and active on one physical PC.

Personally I wouldn't waste the money on it run the lenovo case until you move to a different motherboard/processor.
Of the red case? Sure.
It's the PC I had before my current.
Go To Sleep - nice pics but please don't double post. Use the Edit feature.
Guy above me posted the one i was thinking of
Also, i would be buying a new mobo+cpu when haswell comes out later this year
I will be upgrading in the summer. Hopefully to the latest components available.
There is nothing about that case I like at all.
top mounted PSU
Back 80MM fan slot
no 120MM fans up top
Only 80MM in the front as well
This case is not something that was designed for decent airflow.
Did you see my link aboe with the vulcan?
It supports full liquid cooling with two 120MM fan slots up top, one 120MM slot in the front, 200MM fan slot on the side, and a 90MM in the back. I run this case right now with a Corsair H50 water cooler. Also the PSU is bottom mouted to allow for larger CPU Air heatsinks
Here is mine.
Nice cable management
Yeah c'mon brando buddy! You gotta do something with those cables. I got it.. wrapped them up in these. Its a cheap easy way to hide them without the hours of tucking your cable away, it will look clean and also match your water loop.
LOL cable management for me in that case is not a concern cause I use it to test hardware in so things never stay in there long.
HahhH! At first I thought these two pics were of the same build and chuckled a bit because it was ATI "red" themed on the outside and Nvidia "green" on the inside.
went from this:
after 4 hours of cleaning. dont have vaccum or air blowers, so had to hand clean with a brush
Epic dust is epic.
I think its waving a white flag and giving up
Went SLI. Had to pull 2 modular sata cables and run it all off the molex since adding the 2 pci-e cables would have clipped into the bottom fan.
