If you want a 5770, get the XFX one, lifetime warranty. Cheaper, too.
Newegg.com - XFX HD-577A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
Own one myself, very satisfied.

Why not get the WD black 640GB? Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
It's only one dollar more ATM.

Make sure the Windows 7 is 64-bit. Otherwise you can't use your full RAM.

2.1 is back compatible with 2.0, the full bandwidth of 2.1 isn't really anything special.
