RAM: Kingston 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1333MHz

Video Card: EVGA Geforce GTX 570 SuperClocked

Storage: Corsair Force 3 60 GB SATA III (SSD)
& Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1 TB (HDD)

Optical Drive: LG Black 12X BD-R 2X BD-RE SATA

Power Supply: PC Power and Cooling Silencer Mk II 650W 80 PLUS Silver

Case: NZXT WHISPER 2x80mm 2x120mm

Sound: (Integrated on Motherboard)

Network: TRENDnet TEW-684UB Dual Band 802.11b/g/n 450Mbps USB2.0

*Peripherals undecided

1. Since this build will be using the NZXT Whisper, I'll be hoping for relative silence. Will the parts make too much noise, even with the case?

2. How many hard drives will I need? In this, I only have the 1TB (HDD) and 60GB (SSD). Should I get more?

Thanks for the help. I'm really new to all this. (:

I heard the GTX 570 is pretty loud.

You will be fine with 1 ssd and 1 hdd, unless you like to archive a crap load of stuff.

If it were me, I'd spend the extra $40 and get the 950W just in case you want to SLi your gtx 570 in the future without having to buy a new PSU.

That GTX 570 can be noisy indeed. I'd go with this one instead:

The rest should be fine noise wise.

As for storage, 1TB HDD + 60GB SSD should be fine, although I'd perhaps consider a larger SSD, since after installing Windows, you'll only have 35GiB left or so. Considering how much capacity games take these days, it wouldn't hurt to go with a 90 or 120GB SSD.
