Hi all Mark here from Sydney Australia. First time builder, been doing a bit of research but still need quite a few more answers. :kaola: 
Hoping you lot can give me a hand. :)  Used for CAD drafting with a little 3d rendering and games like battlefield 3.

That Raptor is expensive. Drop the Raptor and cut to the chase. Add the cost of that Intel SSD + the Raptor.

Patriot PYRO Sanforce SF-2200 240GB SATA3 SSD Solid State Drive

The DF-30 is cheap plastic crap with bad electrical. Read the reviews on that case on newegg. It's not one to be recommended.
