My System Specs

Default

Your link in your first post to what I'm assuming was supposed to be the Fractal case is actually linked to some Memory.

The WD RED drive that you picked is actually designed for use in a NAS server system. I'm not sure how well they work in a desktop system.

For $10 more, you can get a Seagate Barracuda 3TB HDD - $128.99. This drive is the 1TB per platter drive that actually has very decent performance for a spindle drive.

As far as an SSD goes, the favorite around here for price/performance is the Crucial M4 128GB SSD - $104.99 at NCIX right now.
