1. I chose the Razer BlackWidow Mechanical Gaming Keyboard and the Cyborg R.A.T. 7.
I've heard many problems with the RAT 7 especially tracking issues. If anyone could suggest me another mouse in the this price range, that would be great.

2. My HDD is 6 GB/s and I know that I it doesn't matter. Should I get the 3GB/s or the 6GB/s even though there is no difference.

I'd go for the Spinpoint f3 if you can spend an extra $20 for a 1TB HDD

perhaps this PSU

Ahh, cant get the F3.

Also, what's wrong with my current PSU? Has enough amps in it's 12v's and OCZ is an ok company. I know Corsair is better but the Fatal1ty is modular.

I don't think there is anything wrong with that PSU exactly.. I'm just picky with the component that makes everything else run.. or die

I'd get a Corsair HX 650w psu myself, but I was trying to stay close to the price of your other psu

I'd love to get the HX 650 but it's to expensive. Plus the Fatal1ty has good reviews.

Any comments for the mouse?

I use a zowie gear mouse myself.. mouse choice is kind of a personal preference kind of thing tho. Just read reviews on newegg and pick one you like :)
