Hard Drive (I do not need a lot of space I think this is enough): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

1. Get a SATA DVD burner. The one you linked to is IDE.

2. Imo, get a 500GB Samsung F3 for a little more. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
One of the fastest HDDs out right now. Believe me, if you plan to play any recent games, and DL a lot of stuff you'll eat through 160GB quick.

3. Unless you got Win 7 Ultimate cheap, get Home Premium.

4. The A-Data RAM is fine, but I recommend these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB DDR3 1333

5. You need a case. I recommend this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
HAF 922 $60 after MIR
or if on a budget:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...
NZXT Beta EVO $25.

6. That OCZ PSU is fine.

7. If you can try and grab this motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
so you'll be able to CrossFire if needed.
Note: I'm not sure if the x4 lane will be a bottle neck in CrossFire.

8. If you are overclocking, get a good cooler like the Core Contact Freezer 120mm.

I recommend Win 7 Pro over Ultimate or Home. It is in the middle of the price range and you get XP Mode, which Home doesn't come with. Also, you don't get all of the "extras" you don't need with Ultimate.

XP Mode is a virtual copy of XP built into Win 7 that allows you to run the older programs that aren't compatible with Win 7 in XP.

^Meh. XP Mode is not really needed imo. If you have programs that don't run on Win 7 you need to upgrade/update those programs or find similar programs that work in Win 7. You can just DL a copy of VirtualBox and run a XP VM assuming you have an XP disk.

As far as programs goes, every thing that I ran on XP x64 runs fine on Win 7 x64.

Yes, every thing is compatible... :D 

I recommend you make the changes to the DVD (to a SATA), hard drive, RAM and add an aftermarket HSF, as sugested by Shadow7073793
