    I am also interested in the desk. Seriously, not sarcastic. I am looking at desks for my upcoming build.

    I don't have any personal experience, but I seldom hear positive remarks about the caviar green. Only $6 less for the 1TB Samsung Spinpoint. Depends on how important that 500 gigs is. Not really within the posted budget, but a Crucial M4 128GB SSD and a better video card would be the only things I can think of, but Intel is a good brand for SSDs and the 6950 is a fine card.

    Desk and Chair

    The pictures on that desk might not look that great but its the exact same as this one (which is out of stock :[) and the pictures look great. The only difference is the one that is in stock has clear glass instead of black :/

    And thanks for the SSD link, I was pretty sure that 80GB wasnt going to fit OS+WoW+D3+SWOTR+GW2 but didn't want to spend too much on the intel 120gb, but 60% increase in space for $15 more? I'll take it.

    Also, I keep a lot of music and movies on my computer, I was actually considering getting a 2TB instead of 1.5 :x

    I would get an OCZ SSD instead one of the intel ones, they tend to have better 1.0 firmware and update more often. Also they tend to not 'break' as much and are more reliable overall.

    You're about to get a firestorm....

    I'll forewarn you: what you said is the exact opposite of the actual truth. You may find OCZ to be reliable based on your experience with perhaps one of their SSD's. However there are several folks on this forum, including myself, who had one or more OCZ SSD's die on them. The fact they have to update the firmware so often should tell you something.

    Intel has had one slip up so far, fixed with a FW update. OCZ just has problem after problem, although my Vertex 2 is still working fine for now.

    If the Intel 250GB wasn't so f-ing expensive, I'd love to get my hands on one. But paying literally 200$ more than another really decent drive is a bit much.
