I believe the motherboard is new enough that you don't have to worry about size limitations

I don't see anything wrong with it. A couple of negative reviews, but you got to take those with a grain of salt

For those prices, why not go with a 500gb? He probably doesn't need that much, but for about the same price, why not? http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList....&name=500GB .
