I like cheap. Mounting this is the question - will I need to buy some brackets to place this into the case?

If you're case doesn't have a 2.5" mount, then you can buy a thingy that converts a 3.5" bay to a 2.5" one.
That's extra money and effort, though. As SSDs don't spin, you can genuinely just duct tape it wherever the hell you feel like and it'll be fine.

Ok Madster .. I've got all my components and have a new desk so I'm going to build this bad boy this weekend. What I do not have yet is an OS. I want to use Window, but paying $200 for it will mean that I potentially wait another week. Any advice? Linux works but whats the learning curve?

Kat.ph may help with Windows.

Ubuntu Linux has a very small learning curve and is pretty easy to jump right into. There is also Mint but Ubuntu is the more preferred option for gaming I think.

Yep, either torrent it and pretend you've used one of my Win7 keys (still got like 3 sitting here), torrent a copy of Home Premium and REALLY use a key (Ultimate has more seeds = quicker download) or throw linux on it and figure out what works and what doesn't.
Hell, if you were really serious about going full legal, i could straight up mail you a sticker key of Vista, have 2 of them on a couple old-ass PCs i stripped for parts.

I personally wouldn't give a shit, though. Microsoft certainly don't - bloody Microsoft Security Essentials updates through windows update with my copy, the manufacturer name of which you find in the system properties as 'Ass' and the model is 'Master'.
