You'll want a SSD with that sort of gear.
I've been told hundreds of times that SSD's just aren't worth the money at this point in time, and I should invest in better hard drives instead.
They are so worth the time, look into a OCZ Aglity 3 60GB. It's £100, and big enough for your favourite programs/games and the OS, and trust me, it makes a huge difference, everything is just so much more responsive. Have to say Ace, all your advice sounds like stuff I'd hear 3-4 years ago. Catch up bro.

I have OCZ Vertex 2s in Raid 0 (2 60xgb)

For the price the Vertex 3s are so worth it.

If you're buying an expensive motherboard you may as well utilise the premium you are paying for, Don't know what sort of forums you're on to read that go for the most expensive motherboard you can afford but don't pay for an SSD.
