Raid 0 SSDs, I got them at a bargain so I figured I'd try it out. Don't regret it. Increased speed noticeably (up from 120GB Agility SSD)
Not the right CPU cooler couldn't find mine (mine sucks since it covers 2 of the Memory slots)
Video Card I have is MSI, but going to upgrade... It was $90 when I got it, was good enough at the time.
Processor has proven itself to be steller. Overclocked to 4.2 on air, 0 problems.
I've tried other mice, but the G500 is just the best for me.
Paid $800, June 2011; add $140 for SSD additions (for both), August 2012
Uses: Software Development; Some (very little) 3D imaging, just started so realizing video card isn't gunna cut it; Gaming (League of Legends, WCIII, DayZ, DotA 2, WoW) - Runs them all on highest settings, even with crappy video card - Recently tried Dishonored and Boarderlands 2, runs them both like a champ!
