Question about out of stock parts on the March 2011 $2000 bonus build

So I'm thinking of going with the System Builder Marathon, March 2011: $2000 Bonus Build, but the case is out of stock. I don't know much about cases and was wondering if someone can suggest a different one to replace the Antec Three Hundred Illusion?

Also, I was thinking of changing out the SSD hard drive for a

Western Digital VelociRaptor WD6000HLHX 600GB 10000 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Is that a good idea for recording live gameplay?

  1. for a case Zalman Z9 Plus $69.99 free shipping. bunch of fans and a built in controller and a cool Z on the front.

    The WD VR is a nice drive. not as fast as an ssd. I would just get a good 120GB SSD

  2. how about a regular antec 300 with some extra blue led case fans?

    its a terrible idea to buy a velociraptor nowadays. either skip the SSDs entirely, or buy this:

    The C300 is the fastest 128gb SSD at this price, I guarantee it.
