Both those options, you mentioned are good. It's just a matter if you want to setup RAID or not.

good idea.. but i would recommend RAID5, it uses 3 Hard Drives, and just like RAID 0+1 u get performance and security... but it requires 3 HD's instead of 4, but i would just get 1 WD 750GB HD and call it a day

WD 750 was even faster than Raptor in some cases
in a really small amount of cases.

It's fast, but the Raptor wins nearly all the time.
Though true, the difference is usually not much.

But I think the Raptor will have increasingly better performance overall if both disks are fragmented. It has a significantly lower seek time.

I just wanted to make sure that if I ever wanted to upgrade from the 8800GTS that I am getting, and I'm assuming the newer cards are going to be bigger, that the case above will be big enough to accomodate it or should I be looking at getting a stacker case? Also; is that cooler ok for the quad?

Thanks,
Sabar

It might fit in that case, but it might be very tight. So get a full tower case, like the stacker.

The AF7 Pro, can handle the quad, under stock speeds, but if you're looking into overclocking, consider a Tuniq.
