If you do not have a need for a blu-ray player I would get a regular DVD burner and add more RAM for photo editing needs.

Consider getting an external drive for back ups.

I didn't notice the blu-ray. I took it out and replaced it with a regular DVD. I also doubled the RAM to 12 gigs.

I already have a 1 TB external drive in raid 1 config; I think I am good on that.

How about my choice of cpu, ram type, mobo, video card, psu, and cooling? The case, btw, is set on stone. I prefer running a little bit over the top than ordering a machine with minimal config.

Other than that the only other recommendation is probably to get Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit instead of Windows 7 Home Premium. You will have more options to add different language support just incase you want to do something with foreign text.
