Hi, long time reader on1st time poster, here for some advice. I decided to build a new computer (below parts are listed) I'm not the best when it comes to picking out parts, but I have a pretty good idea of what is needed. My goal is to be able to run WOW at ultra settings as well as recording with Fraps (Arena/BG's/Raids) In HD without sacrificing too much FPS (45 ). So with this setup will I be able to do so, also if there's anything you would change please feel free to let me know. Thanks in advance.

Also, is it possible to use the SSD as a boot drive, as well as running wow, AND use the 2 HDD with RAID 0 for Fraps storage?
