How much RAM are you going to have?

To take full advantage of your raptor, I would get the smaller one and just put your OS, games, and anything else that you want to use the faster speed for. Then get another slower HDD for all of your music, documents, etc.

That PSU should work as long as you havent been having any problems with it, but it wouldn't hurt to order a newone and keep it handy as a backup.

Since you didn't mention a CPU cooler, I would recommend this Zalman.

To transfer all of your files, you could buy an external hard drive and use that, blank cd/dvd's, thumb drive, etc.

Blazing fast, however, the i7 920 (CLICK HERE) is in that same department at half the price. I would recommend researching more about the i7 technology. The 940 may be overkill, even if you are an extreme gamer. From what I have researched, many extreme gamers find it more beneficial to just get the i7 920, and overclock it, than get the 940 and its hefty price tag. Just a suggestion,
