Final thoughts before I pull the trigger?

Only options left is to:

Upgrade my SeaGate 1TB to a Western Digital Black 1TB OR

Downgrade my SDD to a Samsung 840 (not Pro) 120GB and add another 8GB of RAM OR upgrade my MOBO to Sabertooth 990FX. OR

Fork out the mechanical keyboard for the timebeing and stick to rubber domes and upgrade all of the above.

looks good, fire away

The 128gig ADATA X900 is $90 at the moment if yo wanna knock down a couple bucks go ahead

I like the ASRock Extreme9 990FX board more so than the Gigabyte one. Also, the A-data drives are really inexpensive and very nice.
