    A "bare drive" means OEM which are supposed to be sold in shop-built systems rather than sold directly to end-users. People are supposed to buy retail-boxed drives to receive warranty service but so far, I have never had any problem ordering warranty replacements for OEM HDDs.

    1000W is overkill even if you plan to SLI a pair of 560GTX. Other than that, looks good to me. Depending on how serious you are about your gaming though, some people might recommend stepping the GPU up one more notch.
