get this video card. Its the same one, but comes with a lifetime warranty and has a nice warranty.
Ive never had any problems with WD hard drives. There is the chance that you might get a "bad" one with any brand. I totally agree with the SATA part though.
You will be much happier with SATA.
1) its faster
2) the cable is about 2mm thick and 1cm wide, compared to the beastly size of PATA.
Im not sure which mobo you are getting, but i would choose the MSI Neo-F one over the infinity.
