If anything drop the raptor, the Seagate 7200.11 are very good drives and are approaching the same performance level of the raptors.
I'd get a 32bit OS, but that's your call.
Get this PSU.
Get this DVD drive

Just a heads up, you will only be able to apply for one rebate from Cosair for that RAM. Just to let you know, I'd suggest getting a dual core CPU and a better GPU because that graphics card will not get you anywhere for games.
