    Hi, not sure if this is the best place to ask - please feel free to move.
    I'm looking to upgrade (basically replace almost all of my current workstation, it seems) and would love to get the CG7 Cravo case.
    Can anybody please offer me some advice for if these elements will work together, fit in the case - and more importantly offer me some alternatives if needed.
    I've attached my current workstation specs beneath, if i can re-use anything, that would be great - but i suspect i will need to buy new. I've already migrated data from the RAID and NAS to the cloud, so will only need room for 2 (possibly 3) 2.5" SSD's.
    I mainly use it for photoshop/lightroom these days, although do fancy gaming again now that i have more free time again - but i don't need a beast.
    Many thanks.
