You can use a SATA 2 hard drive on SATA 3. All the SATA standards are meant to be backwards compatible.

depends on what you want
i would avoide BluRay ROMs
but you can get a DVD burner for like 20$
and every maker of those is pretty good
they have had enough time to get it down to an art in terms of production

yes, it seems fine
alot of it is going to be CPU and RAM demanding
you could look at get more ram, like 12 GB or 16 GB
16GB is max for 64-bit W7 Home Premium
but other then that it looks good
