Tough one!

I am building a brand new rig consisting of:
Case: [...] CatId=1510

MotherBoard: [...] CatId=6978

Ram: [...] CatId=4534

Processor: [...] CatId=6989

Cooler for CPU: [...] No=6506388

Power Supply:

I am left blank with what Hard Drive to buy (Best of the Best Preferred-no money limit), I'm not sure if I should go with an SSD since I will only use this rig for Online Gaming and lastly I am gonna go with SLI MSI GTX 570 Twin Frozr III unless someone has a better choice for me.
Again, I have no money limit so respond with only top notch stuff.

Thank You !

If I were looking for the best and fastest drive for a new computer with no price tag limit, I'd look at the OCZ Vertex 3 480GB SSD.
They're fast, fairly large in capacity, and pricey, about $1700.

Another choice might be a Western Digital Caviar Black 2 TB 6Gb/s HDD which would also work, at about, give or take, one quarter the speed, at about one tenth the price.

If it's for gaming, redundency and safety is probably not a high priority.

Your links are broken for CompUSA :( 

I would recmmend a 120GB SSD, plus a 1TB drive for your build. You won't regret it and if you are running SLI GTX 570's, it is a type of build you want a SSD. I can't recommend you devices, since I'm not sure what SATA controllers you are running.

If I go with the Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit will it effect the 32 Cache on the hard drive? Don't really know what's better .... 64 cache or 32 cache...
