You guys are too funny. But I appreciate the offers for assembling a box. I actually have friends at my computer club that can see better than me and could put something together for me. I considered that when I saw a few nice packages on Newegg and TigerDirect. But then I thought it was too much trouble.
I did, however, already order a Crucial M4 SSD from Newegg for the upcoming new box. They had an instant rebate and a promo code so it costs only $104 - i could not resist.
I now found an option at Dell. I am not really a big Dell friend because I have a Dell box in Germany and I was not pleased to find that they had bolted the 2 HDDs to the chassis - no bays. But this XPS8300
looks pretty good and is only $800 with my 2 upgrades (2 USB3 ports and a Radeon graphics card). And the guy at Dell was a bit swifter. He found out that the mobo has a Sata III port (I hope he is right). I asked him to confirm that in an email.
PS: thanks Kari for the advice. But without a Sata III port I am not sure.
