Default Two new builds

Two builds Iím working on. Please critique J. Must order soonest.
The first is an all purpose, and the second is mainly a work/Photoshop/video box. Iíll be using a lot of existing stuff, so Iím just listing the new stuff Iím looking at upgrading.
Cost is not a big concern, but no need to be too extravagant J. I donít game all that much, but I am a big Photoshop user.
#1: - some gaming / quiet is important
MB - Gigabyte X58A-UD7 (will just use air cooling, with some OC)
CPU - i7-920
HS - Noctua NH-U12P SE2 (quiet)
RAM - OCZ Gold 3x2GB 1600 8-8-8-24
GPU - Sapphire HD5870 Vapor-X (quiet)
HD - Intel X25-M 80GB (OS/Apps) (wondering about 2 for RAID 0)
HD - Intel X25-M 160GB (games/working space)
HD - WD drives in RAID 6 for media/data (already have)
SC - ASUS Xonar Essence STX (have HD-555 phones) looking for a front panel?

#2: - mostly Photoshop and video, no gaming
MB - Gigabyte X58A-UD3R (stock cooling, no OC)
CPU - i7-920
RAM - OCZ Gold 3x2GB 1600 8-8-8-24 (will prolly x2 in a few months)
GPU - NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 512 (already have)
HD - Intel X25-M 80GB (OS/Apps)
HD - Intel X25-M 160GB (Photoshop swap space/working space)
HD - most data stored on a remote server

Sounds good? I think Iíve done my research. Let me know if somethingís wrong
