The motherboard has a built in raid controller. Unless your are using a ton of drives or plan on using scsi drives you shouldn't need one.

K

About the Motherboard. Is there another one? Because I have beef with Gigabyte MoBos, bad experience.

EDIT:

For case I'm thinking about this one even though its smaller. But Smoother.
Newegg.com - Antec Performance One P180B Black 0.8mm cold rolled steel for durability through the majority of chassis 1.0mm cold rolled steel around the 4 x HDD area ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

Does the case you show have a mobo tray thats a huge pulse for me. It doesn't say on newegg.

Thinking about this one too.
Newegg.com - iStarUSA Nitro Ax S-10000B Black Aluminum Front panel / 1.0mm SECC/SGCC chassis ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail

Oh...I'm not sure about that. I think it should fit though. The cooler you want, is way cheaper at svc.com:
