I do consider 60Gb for an SSD to be the bare min. You will need to be very selective on which programs you install. Your less important programs should be placed in a partition on your mechanical HDD.

I use a 42in plasma


Do you play games on this screen at the moment?

How far away do you sit?

What ports are available on the display screen?

We are (with the SSD) over budget.

Its ok to be a bit over the budget I can be patient with saving that extra bit.

I sit around 1.7 metres away from the tv , the tv has x2 hdmi slots and a normal computer monitor slot. Its a LG 42" plasma razor thin edition.

I have had a pc plugged up to it and habe played a few little java games but nothing extreme like cod or bf3

A TV is not best optimized for gaming, the response time may not be fast enough so in fast action play there may be some lag, you can only give it a try. It is good that you are that far away from the screen, the closer you get, the more likely you will notice the individual pixels.

Your Mobo comes with only 2 SATA cable So you will need to buy another for the SSD.
I always install an internal system beeper. when you turn the PC on and the POST is OK, you hear a single beep, if something is wrong, you hear a series of beeps, a code that helps you to troubleshoot the issue.

I suggest you use an anti static wrist strap to make sure static from your body does not discharge to sensitive computer parts, this can cause severe damage.
