    I guess many of you know that my gaming rig is called "Blue Monster II". So the blue monster now has a little brother. I will let the pics do the talking:

    Yup .. check the black box in 4-5th pic. That samsung thing is the SSD. Its also in one of the pics inside the cabby. But you can only see the cables running out from it. The actual SSD is not visible as the "HDD hangar" hides it completely :p ... those white hanging things ...

    Cable management is not possible in this cabby :( ....

    ^ for fun :).

    Actually, after being used to a SSD, i just can't stand anything without it. I love fast boot times. And the XBMC heavy skins also benefit from it.

    He is using XBMC, and thought it can work on the most measly configurations, if you have a large library, having an SSD works wonders when fetching those movie posters and backdrops.

    BTW, name the machine 'Baby Blue'/ :p

    OT but can someone help me build a similar download rig which will run a few other services like a gpsgate server and an ftp server? 24/7 operation. No monitor. minimal power requirements. Budget is 20k for the whole thing. I specifically need the cabinet to be as small as possible. Will sit in a corner with sufficient cooling.

    Processor
    Mainboard
    RAM
    HDD
    PSU
    Cabinet
