Thanks guys, this is the info I needed. The plan is to build it myself. It's a great idea to pay attention on the cooling and the power supply. Do you have any suggestion what capacity to get? I was looking at models with 500-600 W.

I want to buy two SSD, one for the system, and one as a cache to use it with Intel Smart Response technology.

I had Windows 7 on my laptop before, and i can tell you, that Windows 8 is far better. Start up time is about 3 times faster, as well as shutdown. It has no stability issues, and i had problem with my USB ports before, but not with 8. I know, start menu sucks, but other than that it's better.

I have a laptop that came with Vista (yes, crap) that I upgraded to Win7 and that runs fine, very stable. My two desktops (new builds) run Win8 and super stable... zero crashes in 7 months of operation. Note, the Win8 detractors are Mac users... so how would they know how good/bad Win8 is. If my desktops were running Win7, I doubt I'd upgrade, but for new builds, I'd definitely recommend Win8.
