I would recommend the xigmatek S1283 cooler, and make sure you get fans for that case to fill up the slots. Don't recognize the sound card brand. I would get cheaper hdds and raid them and get a Q9550. Don't recognize the video card either...

I should have mentioned it's a PC for business applications

It seems a little overkill.
Get cheaper RAM. You won't need that kind of speed, nor will you be able to use it.
Consider a cheaper motherboard chipset. You won't be using Crossfire or anything.
Do you need a Velociraptor? The regular 320GB HDs are almost as fast, if I recall, but much cheaper.
