No probs, You can connect SATA 2 into SATA is just...the speed will be SATA 2.

BTW : make sure your win 7 pro is the x64 version, so that you can use your RAM to the fulllest.

Your system is good to go.
And if you have extra money, get an SSD (OCZ Vertex 2 or Crucial C300), but you can add an SSD anytime later.

I was thinking when I do go SSD I would like to get 2 in Raid0 for my boot/game installations. Though I am not sure on the availability or cost effectiveness of Sata 3 SDD vs Sata 2 (In SSD)

I get about a 2025 second boot time now with that 7200 RPM HDD in sata 2. Would like to see how low I could get it with two SSDs in Raid 0 though. :)
