Well, a couple of thoughts, Kyler. First, you haven't apparently budgeted for a video card, which is pretty important for 3D apps. You might want to consider getting a smaller, less expensive SSD for a boot drive and putting some mechanical drives in there for scratch disk use and storing your data.
Oh, and I just noticed that you don't have a power supply yet, either.This message was modified by the poster at 12 24, 2012 01:47 AM
Here's what I'd recommend for your WS rig. All prices are from sale page other than the video card which you'll have to PM or purchase somewhere else.
Bitfenix Ghost ATX NanoChrome $79.99
XFX 550W PRO550W Power Supply $49.99
ASUS P8Z77-V Lk ATX Motherboard $119.99 after MIR
Intel Core i7 3770K Quad Core Hyperthreading Processor $329.99
Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo Heatsink $29.99
Samsung 830 Series 256GB SSD $209.99
G.SKILL F3-12800CL10D-16GBXL 16GB $69.99
NVIDIA Quadro 4000 by PNY 2.0GB Workstation VC ~$700 Price matched
Microsoft Windows 7 Professional Edition 64BIT $137.99
I would add 2 X WD Black 1TB in RAID 0 for a scratch disc.
