Get a Spinpoint F1 drive.

That PSU is utter ****e. You should get a PCP&C 610 like me. But be prepared to mod the 900.

now that's a solid build, looks like you did your homework
wish i got good advice like that when starting out ;P

Edit: If you want Modular PSU (so you won't have much of un-used wires just having a party in your case)
get the popular Corsair Brand HX series
or get that cool-looking GREEN leds Mushkin!
Newegg.com - mushkin 550150 ATX12V 650W Power Supply 115/230 V - Retail

Also, I would advise you to get an Aftermarket H/S/F. Depending on your budget, you should consider the Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme (you need to purchase a fan seperately) or Tuniq Tower 120 (fan included).
