Hi and welcome to the forums. It would seem that you have things pretty figured as to what is needed ( MOBO, Processor, & Memory ). Given your budget, that looks pretty good. As for gaming, the Nvidia 9500GT may be questionable ( I haven't checked the specs ). A 9800GT would be better. If that card is 128 bit, then you should probably be alright although the newer games may be a bit problematic.

I awesume you are using two sata HDDs???
Just plug them in according to the motherboards manual.
When you go to load your OS, it should see both drives.
Install the OS where you want.
When win install is complete you should see the drive you want for storage as D:
If you don't see it you will need to initailize it.
Easly done. If needed we'll deal with it then.
