I have a wd 740GD 74GB raptor from my last system about 4years ago. I am currently pricing hardware for a i7 860 or 920 build and was going to get a samsung spinpoint f3 1tb. Im not interested in SSD right now. Should I use the raptor for an os/system drive and the cavier for storage?

I don't see why not. The raptor—if it still works properly—will keep your boot times up.
It's big enough for the OS and easy to image the drive for backup to your new drive without wasting too much space.
