consider putting vent hole on top of where the PSU Fan might be, also if you are buying a 'Good Looking' GPU then i would consider a small windows just to show off, same with cpu cooler

Maybe. This one only has a 120W PSU built in, and only supports one internal drive. Not too mention that it is out of stock almost everywhere.

With this system I can have an optical drive and five 2.5" drives.
The motherboard i picked has a H77 chipset and has two sata3 ports and four sata2 ports. I could have theoptivcal drive and SSD on the sata3 ports, and I could possibly also fit 4 hard drives in this. Should I make them raid? would RAID 10 be better than RAID 5?

How well do intel chipsets (such as the H77) handle Raid 10? what 1TB drives would you recommend for this setup?

I'd rather not spend over $200 for each hard drive, but after that, this is more of a project I'd like to do eventually (when I'm done school and have a job) so there's no real budget limitation. So I don't really need specifics, just things like if WD green drives will work or what can handle limited cooling
