    What is your budget?

    Personally, I would go with two hard drives. One dedicated to the OS and Installed files, another dedicated to storage. It'll be a pain in the *** to partition and repartition that thing if you suddenly decide you want more space, or if your harddrive dies on you (which has happened once so far to me. SUCKS.)

    I like the 9800GT. Today, that's a high-midrange card. Plays Crysis.

    PSU looks good. 650 is plenty, and it's 80+, which is always good for the environment, and your electric bill.

    I don't really see anything wrong with any of that, as long as you have the funds to purchase it all.

    EDIT: What's with the wireless router? Do you not have a wired LAN connection in your office/bedroom/whatever? LAN is going to give you the best possible speeds at all time, and you can get ethernet cable on the cheap from newegg, and wire your entire house if need be. (I had to do it, not that hard).
