Thanks a ton!!! It looks great. Only thing is I heard that SSD isn't very fast. Wouldn't the Samsung Evo be better?

Sure the samsung is a little better. If you have the spare money or want to get a cheaper case fit it in the build. This case isnt bad and it would let you fit the Samsung SSD in the build.
