Hello guys good day. i would like to ask for your suggestions/comments regarding the parts im about to order. Its a value-oriented rig.

This is my first haswell build. Be used mainly as a mid-level workstation/gaming.
Graphic design, Light CAD, C4D Rendering. Not a hardcore gamer but will possibly tap on 3D heavy games like crysis, etc.

No overclocking. No Intel Smart Response Technology.

CPU: Intel Core i7 4770
Motherboard: Gigabyte B85M-D3H
Cooler: Cooler Master Seidon 120M
Memory: Gskill Ripjaws X 16gb (8x2) 1600 CL9
Video Card: Inno3d Gtx 760 Herculez 2000s
PSU: XFX Pro Series 650w XXX Edition
Boot Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black 500gb 64mb Cache 7200rpm
Storage Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1tb 64mb Cache 7200rpm
Case: Cooler Master N200
Rom: External DVD-WR

I was going to order Hyper 212X instead of Seidon, but the former is not available in our area.

Cant complain about this, look pretty good. The only thing I would suggest is to replace the 500GB black drive with a 128GB SSD. It will make a noticeable difference, especially when launching those big CAD programs.
Id suggest a Samsung 840.

Thank you for giving you thoughts about the build. I really appreciate it. But having an SSD is really out of my options. Why? Ive been a DeepFreeze user for years and i cant verify the compatibilty between an SSD and the software. Although Faronics updated deepfreeze to work with an SSD, but i can seem to find any forum/threads/boards that can verify the claim. I really need deepfreeze coz i just feel secured.
