    OK I'm lost? You want to build a system? you already built it? You need to sell it and get a laptop? Maybe a spam post?

          I see you edited your original post, thanks.

          For future proofing go with a motherboard that has USB3 and SATA3.
          List of boards that support USB3/SATA3. When choosing a motherboard make sure it has the legacy support you need, aka PS2, IDE etc. GTX 280's do not support DX10.1 or DX11. The only way I would recommend using these cards is if you already have them from a previous build and want to save some money. Personally I would never build a SLI or Crossfire system as the performance increase is not as large as it should be. Plus it only works with select games. If you must have SLI two 1 gig GTX 460's would be a good choice.

          The 150 gig Raptors are quite old. The newer faster Raptors are way too expensive. WD Black series drives are faster and cheaper than all but the latest Raptors. You can get a 1TB WD Black for under $100.

          As Passmark said an SSD will make your new build feel much faster. I have an SSD my self and will never build a new PC without one. An SSD will not do you much as far as gaming goes. Most newer games use compressed files that must be uncompressed when loading the game or level. Because of this the bottle neck becomes the CPU and the game engine it self. Most newer games load levels into RAM and do not continuously access the hard drive during a level.

          If you have the money go with a 80 gig or bigger SSD for your boot drive and one or more WD Black drives for games and data as needed. If money is a problem use a WD Black for the boot drive instead of an SSD.
