    for me the sata hdd ssd is the better way in add of the sd card reader. You can plug the ssd outside with sata cable as you said :
    and more now you the ssd is less expensive than the CF for a huger capacity.

    And last thing put your ssd outside is more simple to unplug it and load game/remove games with your computer.

    You can try to contact the dreampsu builder, I know he has already received a lot of requests. Maybe if he has some more, he would build others dreampsu again.

    I would like to throw my name in the hat for one, please.
    Im tired of reading about all of the possible mods i could do and would like to actually get on with it, lol.
    Your mod looks like the best route in my mind, slap a DreamPSU with it, and it should fit inside nicely

    I know CF cards are more expensive, but I dont want to drill holes in my case. So I ordered the complete pico psu kit instead.. Also got my 44 pin 2.5" CF reader.
    I hope I'll be able to route a 20cm 44pin laptop IDE cable from the psu (left side) under the mainboard all the way to the g1 test points without it being too thick.
