i would recommend doing mirrored raid, for which you need two hard drives. the reason i recommend mirrored raid is that i doubt you would want to lose 1tb of data if one of the hard drives die.
i would recommend these hard drives. (get 2 for raid)

they have longer warranty, they are made by WD so they have awesomeness, and they are also of the top end caviar BLACK sieres.

Why would you want a mobo with on-board video..!! Have a look at the MSI 790FX-GD70.. In case you are looking out for usb 3.0, that can be done by placing add in cards which anyway will fetch you more ports..

Hi, solid build.

1- The Spinpoint F3 is better that the WD and the last one are more expensive, if you want a mirror array, get two Spinpoint F3 and make at least 4 partitions.
2- The mobo is good if you want the new chipset, if not, get THIS mobo, is more expensive, but can support crossfire at x16 and also have SATA III and USAB 3.0

Well, the Crosshair III is an expensive mobo, and don't support SATA III or USB 3.0. If you don't want it you can go with THIS have similar performance as the Crosshair III and a less price.

Yeah, the RAM work with out problem just make your sure set the configuration of your RAM manully in the BIOS.

P.D. The recommended speed RAM for an AMD build is 1333.

Ok, good. That RAM also can run at 1333, but 1st check the prices of the 1333 memory, don't have sense spend money on a 1600 to run it at 1333.
