As I make my final choices, I'd like advice on the components I've chosen (a couple of modifications since my original post, different SSD and Memory). Trying to keep it between $1000 and $1100. Thanks in advance.

V300 ssd was reported to have some issues a few months back relating switching cheaper nand iirc, i like the SanDisk ultra 2 & pny xlr8 models for budget priced but still quick ssds, everything else looks fine to me tho.

Do you think the Crucial MX100 256GB might be a better choice?
