Hey guys im planning a new build and need thoughts on on/about the build itself
Build is mainly for School/Uni work, Vegas 9 editing, Photoshop, Gaming and for productivity also trying to future proof as much as possible :) 
Here are the specs:

LITE-ON CD/DVD Burner SATA Model iHAS124-04 X24
Case either HAF 912, Antec 300, or Rosewill challenger-(Best for cable management etc)
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition
Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM
Western Digital VelociRaptor WD740HLFS 74GB 10000 RPM-(for games and start up)
AOC F22 Piano-black Glossy 22" 5ms
Gskill ripjaws 4gb
GIGABYTE GA-890GPA-UD3H AM3 Mobo(IGP)Should igo 890gx or FX?
Windows 7 pro 64-Bit
MSi 5830 Twin Frozr( as main rendering card)
Now this is where im needing help is an old 8800gts (g92) sufficient to play games with physx at high providing it being a dedicated physx card as the 5830 will do the graphics render?
Oh and i need a power supply suggestion for this build as im stunted for the psu.
Needing abit of reassurance/help on this build as it is only my second, so some input on all aspects of this build would be greatly appriciated :) 
Thanks in advance

I would get an SSD, not the velociraptor. Even WD is making SSD's now. It should cost about the same. Your velociraptor will be only marginally faster than the 7200RPM drive.
