With the money saved, I would add some storage. Use the SSD for your C-Drive and game storage. Use the HDD for documants, videos, photos, and other data. If there is any corruption, you can re-format your C-drive without losing your data. I forgot that the 9400F is loud. You'll probably want a cooler for it.

You will need to call Newegg and make sure that the MB has been upodated with the newest BIOS so that it can use the 9400F. It's offered as a combo, so I would be surprised if it doesn't come with the newest BIOS for Intel 9th gen chips. Nevermind, it says "Supports 9th/8th Gen Intel Core"

This combo would be nicer for $21 more, but I know, it's getting expensive! You get 4 RAM slots (versus 2), 2 M.2 slots (versus 1), 5 versus 1 rear USB 3 ports, and probably a better voltage regulation module for the CPU (and a full size ATX MB would look nicer in that MasterBox case.)

Maybe, get this combo now, and add the additional storage later.
I like everything about this, I'm gonna order tomorrow or Monday if I feel the same. Thank you Sir!

It's good! Except.....my storage isn't coming up. What am I doing wrong here?? I have a m.2 slot and have a 500GB SSD in there. The LED is illuminated but it's not showing up in the bios screen.

Hey....how do I post pictures here? I see the "insert image" but it wants an http:// and I don't know what that is (sorry)

I think you have to post you images to imgur or similar and then link to them.
