Bang for the buck

$799 from newegg

no, the Asus 1215N and MSI U250 are both light and thin, you can choose what type of ram and what HDD's you want.
both use standard DDR3
both use standard 2.5" SATA HDD bays, almost all 2.5" SSD's work

could be a bad power supply when you start drawing max power. its happened to my brother, he had a POS antec power supply, it kept shutting down in the middle of a game with lots of explosions, then we replaced it with an enermax 600W and it was fine after that.
