yes you can either them on each other it's fine...you just cant Crossfire on an SLI and whatnot without hacked drivers....not that SLI or Crossfire are worth it.

That motherboard supports RAID: 0,1,0+1, so you don't need a RAID controller card. You don't need SCSI controllers unless you go with SCSI drives... which would be nuts.

If you act fast, you can get some killer G.Skill RAM for $10 more:
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

Everything else looks good.
