looked around online on the ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3, it apparently doesn't have usb 3.0 headers. Can I just buy a usb 3.0 header from somewhere and plug it in?
The WD has a 64MB cache and SATA 6.0Gb/s. + 5 years warrantry.
Which is better, Seagate or Western Digital?
Because their 1tb 7200rpm prices differ by a fair amount
I would like to get a better case.

Ummm, no. Note sure what this means. The size of the drive has nothing to do with efficiency. Having two physical drives to distribute the installed programs can improve over all disk performance but the preferred method is to have a smaller drive as the boot drive for the OS and perhaps HW drivers only (which is how I set up my systems), and a big secondary drive for all installed programs, Page File, temp files, data files, etc.
If going with the Z68 Mobo, would leave you enough in your budget to install a smaller second HDD. This would greatly improve the efficiency of the system.

Just make sure you triple check to ensure you only install a standoff where there is a corresponding motherboard mounting hole.
Now to install everything into the case
