So, here we are. I've edited this forsaken son of a gun countless times (8), and finally tuned it to my liking. Let me say that I am NOT looking to "upgrade" parts. I am satisfied with all my choices, and will be purchasing this sometime in November, possibly October. So, thoughts?

I've never personally owned a Seagate HDD, but I've heard that they have a higher failure rate than Western Digital. So perhaps go for a WD Caviar Blue HDD. It's roughly the same price (+/- $10).

Alright, took your advice, replaced the HDD for an extra $3 to WD. Thank you.
