New PC!! Going to be a -beast-

Been a while since I upgraded and this one is going to be a real screamer.

Small form factor case, about the same as a Mac Mini but a bit thicker.

-Antec ISK 110 (case)
-Intel i7 3770S (65W version for small form factor)
-ASRock B75M-ITX (motherboard)
-16GB DDR3-1600 CL9 memory (2 x 8GB DIMMs)
-240GB Kingston HyperX 3K SSD

The really interesting thing about this rig is that the motherboard has a feature that will create a RAMDISK using an included ASRock software app. I plan to use half the physical memory (8GB) as a RAMDISK for Photoshop scratch disk. Should -really- scream.

The total cost is less than $750 USD in parts. Unbelievable value.

The parts are still arriving, but I'll update once I get it put together.
