My SVN repo's are around 12GB. which would fit, but not really not a wise use of the SSD space. I think I could get a much better result with a good raid controller and a couple of raptors in raid 1. I need to order today, I will post what I decide.
Just get two samsung F3's and short stroke them.

Take the F3, partition it at 300GB. Leave the rest unused. The Velociraptor's few advantages aren't big enough to cover it's price premium.

Just trying to save you some loot.

Ordered....

I did decide to go without SSD, and went with the raptor. I wanted to be able to utilize that snazzy new SATA III interface. I Got a 600GB VR drive for System/Programs, and a 1TB Caviar Black for everything else.

Full specs.

ASUS Sabertooth P67 B3 Intel P67 LGA1155 MB
Intel Core i7-2600K 3.4Ghz Unlocked LGA1155 CPU
Corsair Vengeance 16GB PC12800 DDR3 1600MHz 4x4
Corsair Hydro H70 CPU Liquid Cooler
EVGA GeForce GTX 570 HD 1280MB GDDR5 PCIe
LG 10X Blu Ray Burner Internal Drive
Corsair HX850W 850W Modular Power Supply

On impulse I picked up a new case....
Corsair Graphite Series 600T Mid-Tower Case

Nice choice going for the 600T, and the H70 too, the H50 is just cruddy, a lot of air coolers within its price range beat it

Pretty darn sweet rig you just ordered!

I just got everything assembled. I will likely add a secondary fan since there is no air going below the thermal shield. I just don't have a 50mm fan handy. I am pleased with the assembly so far, it is a nice case to get your cables laid out nicely. My temps are a little high, but my office building cuts the air on the weekends so it is quite warm in here. Right now idle in the bios at 43c. I was thinking it should have been lower than that. I mounted the radiator on its side, but according to Corsair it should not matter. I was going for the smoothest hose layout.

Here is a very poor cell phone pic. I may take some more with my real camera when I get it home.
