New PC toys

My main PC is slowly dying (hard drive access is getting excruciatingly slow) and it's probably 4 years old by now so it's time to get some new hardware. Here's what I've ordered:

- Intel Core i5-2400 Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.4GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core CPU
- GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
- 8GB of DDR3 2133 RAM (I'll upgrade to 16GB later)
- Crucial M4 CT064M4SSD2 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (for OS)
- 500GB 7200rpm conventional hard drive for apps and temporary storage
