Yes, Reaper is a very good value for money multitrack and MIDI recording package. I use Cubase personally, but that's because I have used it since version 1 and have kept up with the upgrade programme over the years, but had I been starting now, I would almost certainly have gone down the Reaper route. I don't think you'll have any trouble using plugins like EZ Drummer. The HD400 will act as your audio interface. I would recommend that you download the latest full-featured version of Reaper and try it before you buy it. You get thirty days normal use, after which you get continued full access usage, but with a 'nag' screen when you start the program. If you intend to use the application, it is so cheap for the home use license, that I don't believe it is in anyone's interest for you not to buy the license as it represents excellent value for money - I'm not suggesting you aren't willing to pay the $60 license fee BTW as you clearly are from your post

+1 for all what Nick said. I also use Cubase for the same reasons and had I been starting out, reaper would be the choice. It's probably the most efficient software DAW outhere, less than 10 mg for the whole program when every other is in the hundreds.
