Consider a slightly larger SSD if you can spare the extra $70 or so for the 250GB, I originally purchased a 120GB with my rig with the intention to run the OS and a few games on it but some of the more recent games I've purchased came with hefty install sizes which ended up chewing through the space on my 120GB very quickly.

^^ Yep!

You can import an 840 evo 240gb for roughly $20 from amazon. Check that out.

As for aesthetics, I personally wouldn't ruin the look of the prodigy with an optical drive, but to each their own. I would rather buy an external optical drive and use that when I need to (twice in the last 3 years).

Also don't forget about the fans! This thing can take a massive 230mm fan at the front which you should definitely utilise.

I think you mean $20 more?

I wouldn't be buying a Corsair CX PSU. Besides, it is basically out of stock. And 750 W is far more than needed – 500 W would be fine.

Any particular reason for the 4690K with an H97 mobo?

I think I was supposed to say $120. But I think that was when a sale was on. Now it's at $130USD before shipping.
