I'm only a rookie but perhaps you could go with two 128GB solid states and RAID them for faster access..?

Someone please correct me if needed!! I suspect you could do with a better cooling system too

Also from what I've heard Fractal cases are great (and I'm a sucker for windowed builds)

Good luck :)

Either way, I'd stick the WD Blue in there in place of the Seagate
