  1. I think you did a good job. The only thing I might have done differently is buying a 128GB SSD for $100 and a 1TB HDD for $70 and use the SSD as a boot drive...but that's only necessary if you need more than 256GB of storage on each pc...and I'm guessing you don't. Nice work.
  2. Solid office build. Although i don't know why you choose ssd over hdd.
  3. Thanks for the feedback. I have an SSD in my home PC and it makes for a wonderful experience, especially when using a large outlook mailbox for searching and such. I wanted to bring that zippiness to this new PC and remove any bottlenecks the HD speeds may cause (1 PC will be running Photoshop and Adobe products for graphics work). I didn't go with a dual drive setup because one of these if for my wife and she was not keen on needing to manage the placement of her files. I figure this size SSD would make for a more maintenance free and worry free experience.
