You dont need 2 of the raptors. Just get one 36GB for your OS and main programs/games. Get a 250GB or however big you need for storage. The only difference you will see with the raptor is slightly faster load times.
Instead of the audigy sound card, get the X-fi extreme music. Its better.
Your CPU is good, but you may want to consider going dual core.

Overall it looks good though. Either way it will be good, but some things are just expensive and wont help your performance.

about the raptors thats a question ive been meaning to ask

ive been told raid 0 basically gives faster performance (for games, video editing etc) and i was told 2 buy 1 300gb hard drive for storage and 2 raptors for speed. but how would it work?
