I've had hard drives die on me in that period of time. That doesn't mean I never bought a hard drive ever again. In fact I just did an RMA and get a new drive. I've had motherboards die on me, it didn't stop me from buying another motherboard, and then RMAing the old one and ending up with a motherboard to start another computer.
Dying components are just an annoyance you have to deal with...
They are very annoying. And doesn't Corsair need a reciept for RMA?

I suppose you could get 8GB of RAM, but it's not worth abandoning your current sticks for.
Perhaps you could use the money to build a low budget system for a relative; I would always do this when I had a few extra parts laying around. You can really please someone by gifting them a PC.
Believe me, my RAID'd F3's are nothing compared to the old SSD I had. But having that kind of accident really scares you. Just imagine if I had my architecture and CAD stuff on it, I'd shoot it
The case doesn't sound bad either. I've been eyeing the Phantom and Raven at my local Frys for a while now.

If you don't need the cores, grab a BD x4
Leaving some $100-200 for an SSD
I actually need the 8 cores for my visualizations and renderings.... and the e-peen. Can't forget about the e-peen
