I first want to start this thread by thanking everyone here at Tom's. I have been researching my first build for the past 4 months and this website has been fantastic. Unfortunately, I just cannot decide what to do. I currently own 3 Asus 24" 1920x1080p monitors, an i7-950, 2 EVGA GTX 580's and a Silverstone Raven RV01. I have $1500 to build the rest. I am extremely interested in a Revodrive x2 100gb but not sure if that's a good way to go. I will be buying the rest of the parts in about 2 weeks. Please help me. I need everything else including keyboard and mouse as this is my first pc. This is strictly a gaming pc. Thank you for your advice and opinions.

Additional Comments:

I'm very interested in the Revodrive x2 but as this is my first pc it might be over my head.

Are two of these a good decision for my case instead of what is provided with it?

Blue LED's inside the case would be cool.
