Cool I need Upgrade advice and info on EL cables

I have 2 computers one with a dfi board the look of that case is styled to take advantage of UV reactive stuff, and one onter computer which I have yet to bling.

I am trying to decide exactly what to get to make my comp totally Pimp. Weather to go with the UV thing again (although this time my MoBo isn't a DFI) and get this stuff.

UV emitting fans:

Assorted UV reactive Cabling:

and UV reactive fan filters:


To get tons of glowing EL accessories. Like these fans:

These EL cables:

and These "Fireflies":

keeping in mind that the UV load out is somewhat cheaper for me and that all of this stuff is going in this Aerocool Aeroengine 2 case:

and that if I bling the case I can't buy my self a 74gb raptor drive to upgrade my comp. (which I think is already performing well without it)

would the best use of the raptor be to reinstall my OS on it? or would it be good to ren my games from it? or both? and have you ever used that EL cables before, do the little power wires get annoying and take up too much space?

Sorry for being so inquisitive.

not bright, hmm it looks bright in the photos online. is managing the wires that come from the EL wire a problem?

Edit: what is the most effective way to use a raptor drive?
