Orthos will stress memory and your CPU. Type orthos into google you'll find it.
Not sure there's anything to test a hard drive.. if it runs windows then it works, right?

sandra is decent.
memtest is a must-have.
super pi mod to brag about 1mb calculation speed.
orthos x2 for stress testing.
3dmark in a loop.
Go to your harddisk manufacturer site & get their free software to do a sector-by-sector test. Should've been done before installing os. To test both read & write.
