Go with the drive Cat suggested.
Now throw some suggestions out for a good motherboard and let me go have a look.

Partial wish list:
These are single item prices. As the build progresses 3 more HD's and 1 more set of ram will be added. Target ram is 16gig and the HD's will total 2TB over 4 drives. There is no vid card at this time.

Judging from the case you found,may I suggest Thermaltake or Aerocool. Both do some very nice cases.

As for a motherboard suggestion how about a Gigabyte one? I will poke about online a bit and get a model or at least a range from Gigabyte to look into.
