Hi guys, I'm updating my PC at home and have built two configurations that I'm tossing around in my head as possible purchase parts. What I have that will be reused is a keyboard, mouse and 27" Samsung monitor. These configurations don't have a CPU cooler in them ( Not sure if I'll use stock cooler or buy upgrade cooler - if I do I have $50 to $100 set aside for that ). As far as use of the set-up. The SSD would have just OS on it and Solidworks. The Velociraptor would be used for all other applications ( I game as well as do some video work  ) I also do a lot of renders with solidworks hence the SSD, and the 2TB drive would be my data drive. Please let me know what you think. Also is the 850 Watt PS enough? I used Newegg for the builds but I know that some of these components can be had for a greater savings from other sites. Thanks!
