It does not look like your PSU choice matches the quality of the other parts. 2yr warranty says 'cheap' to me.
Definitely change out that power supply for a Corsair, Seasonic, Antec or other quality brand. Also the WD Caviar black 640gb is a newer model, so I'd step up to that, or grab a Samsung Spinpoint 500gb (cheaper option) instead.
