This is what I prefer. But I can't use it all the time. Best budget mouse I've found.

Something like this? BTW we use the 1TB MLC where I work. Maybe I could pick up an old one cheap...

You could get away with a 120gb on your desktop rig since you have multiple HDDs, but on the laptops it'd be nice to get a bigger SSD.

For some laptops, they have extra msata slots that looks like an internal pci-e and dimm slot. I guess a secondary msata ssd will be cheaper solution?

For now, ssd over 256G is still a bit too expensive. You can only get discount when you go over 900G. However, the starting price is already an laptop.

While much faster than spinning media, most mSATA drives are painfully slow. Often better used as cache than primary drives due to smaller size etc.

 

I ahve two 80G 2.5" form factor drives but don't really feel like fighting UEFI/Secureboom to get it working on windows and in linux it's just not a big win for what I do there. But mSATA as a cache might be a good idea.

they use to be slow, but now they are just as fast as normal SATA III. Normally you won't tell the difference. And yes, the most they came is 250G, but I think that is more than enough for a second OS~~~~

 

My thinkpad have 160G intel as primary and another 250G mSATA for linux and virtual machine. So far, I find no difference in performance. I think as long as IOPS matches up to a certain speed, it does not matter how fast the maximum continuous transfer rate is~~~~

Intel Sandy i5-2500K (3.7GHz) CPU

Asus P8Z68-V Motherboard

AMD Radeon HD 6800 Graphics Card

8GB DDR3-1333 Memory

1TB Seagate HDD

NZXT Phantom 410 Case

 

As for monitors, I've got a cheapo Dell 24" LCD gaming monitor and an Asus PA248 24" IPS panel. The IPS is gorgeous.

 

I really dig my build, though I should really get a sound card. It's a great gaming budget build though; never found a game that doesn't run smoothly at top specs, and the PC is 2 or 3 years old now.

That's awesome. Reminds me of a higher-end version of mine. Have you checked out the NZXT Hue? It looks great in the Phantom and makes trippy lighting effects. I love it.
