1.) your sig is too big
2.) for your new comp get TWO hyper x's, you don't need 4, in fact, have 4 dimms may decrease your performance
3.) try getting a better mobo with that money
4.) the atop psu is ****
5.) get a mobo that supports RAID and during the windows install, the first thing it asks you is press "F6 i think" to install raid

how do you want to setup ur raid?? peformance or reliability??
u need at least 2 identical hard drives.
u also need to find out which raid setups ur motherboard supports 1-5.

so post the answers to those questions and we take it from there.
