That looks like an overall great build to me. However, will that 110GB be enough storage for you? I don't think you'll need 2 raptors. I personally like the idea of having a Raptor as a primary drive for your OS and games for increased performance and a larger 7200 hard drive to hold everything else.

Maybe I'm wrong so somebody please correct me if i am, but you dont gain a whole lot running 2 raptors. Having a raptor as your primary then a 250gig 7200 rpm as your slave would be much better.

ya the DFI lanparty is a very popular board and seems to be considered the best if your planing on overclocking.

So that would probably be a good choice.
