Ah... game development is a different story. Definitely wanting to keep the GPU you have. I'd still avoid RAID though.

Definitely get a solid cooler and OC the chip.

You might want to consider increasing to one of the new 960GB SSD's from Crucial. At $600, that's a solid price point. Or maybe even spend the money on upgrading those HDD's to enterprise level 2TB drives. Space is quickly going to become a premium if you're working on large scale 3D models.
