Hi!

This is a build I want to make for my girlfriend as a christmas present and kind of a present for doing really well in college. I'd love to include a SSD but this is the absolute limit of my budget. This case is a must unless you can recommend one that is the same size and cheaper.

I will be buying this mixed from scan, amazon and Mindfactory since I'm in Ireland and they charge an arm and a leg for very basic, outdated components. Walked into Maplins where they were asking for E200 for a 750ti, walked out as quickly as I could.

any opinions would be greatly appreciated!

If you change the memory, then you can afford the SSD.

I still need a lot of storage 275gb won't be enough :( I need minimum 500gb or she won't have enough space for college material and games

Ok, then how about this Toshiba 2TB HDD. It appears to be on sale and cheaper than 1TB drives.
