Sup playas.

It's been a while since I build basic CAD machines for my uncle but now he had a pretty specific request:

He bought a plotter machine/printer. Which costs a lot and is for printing huge adhesives and stuffs for fairs. He mentioned some adjustments might be necessary before printing..like puting some huge (some gb) photo files and even 3ds Max files!

So we need a lot of processing power and fast file transfer/access times! But we don't want to go nuts on the price here, SSD raid's are out of question I think the cost-benefit here is just too much.

Here is what I have in mind, let me know what you guys think:

MB: Gigabyte GA-P67X-UD3 (Lots of USB ports[must]. Cheap.)
CPU: Intel Core i7 2600k
Mem: 4x4GB (16) Kingston DDR3 1333Mhz (Too much?)
PSU: Corsair GS700 (Pretty cheap. Reliable?)
GPU: Asus GTS450 (Only for OpenGL and stuff)
HD: 2x 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black's SATA III in Raid 0 ( I thought about going for an SSD but it requires certain knowledge from the user and since anyone will be using this machine it's easy for them to screw up and this machines must be up 24/7. It wouldn be nice to have someone screw up an expensive SSD and stop the machine.. )

I'll pick a case afterwards..
That's it for now. I'll wait your input until the end of the week.
Thanks in advance for the help. OCN just rules.
