About to buy the parts for workstation build but have one question.

About to buy the parts for workstation build but have one question.
After about a week of searching I think i finally decided on a computer build and its essentially the $2500 workstation build but with a few changes. Here is the whole build.

ASUS Z8NA-D6C (MIO) Dual LGA 1366 Intel 5500 ATX Dual Intel Xeon 5500 and 5600 Series w/ MIO Sound card Server/Workstation

PNY VCQ4000-PB Quadro 4000 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Workstation Video Card

Intel Xeon E5620 Westmere 2.4GHz LGA 1366 80W Quad-Core Server Processor BX80614E5620

Kingston HyperX 24GB (6 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3K6/24GX

CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-850HX 850W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Corsair Graphite Series 600T Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM

Intel X25-M SSDSA2MH080G2K5 2.5" 80GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Four Samsung F3 500GB

Two Supermicro Intel Xeon 4U CPU Cooler
ARCTIC COOLING MX-4 Thermal Compound

I think I'm pretty set on getting all of this which should add up to around 3300$. I do heavy duty 3d work and i really need an upgrade soon. I never built a computer before but I'm sure i can handle it. I do have a couple questions though. I'm not too familiar with what RAID 10 is and how that applies to the Harddrive. Also will having the kingston RAM and the Quadro 4000 require me to change the power supply or the case since the hardware is different from your inital 2500 workstation. I'm sorry if I'm very noob at this but its my first time and 3300$ is a lot for me .... i want to make this right and this website is by far the best information source i have ever seen. Thanks in advance!
