    psu OCZ StealthXStream 500W
    tv tuner Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1250
    case Cooler Master Elite 310
    heatsink Thermalright 120 Ultra Extreme

    Already have:
    30gb ocz vertex ssd
    500gb seagate 7200.11

    hmm.. If you're going to load vista/ 7 on the SSD, wouldn't it be better to get a 60 gb one?

    But with programs etc. you want most of your applications to be stored on there right?
