This would be a GREAT start to your build. IMO of course!

I've been hearing a lot about the 680i's SATA problems, especially on the eVGA. The DFI 680i comes out next week I think, so that would be a better buy, or at least avoid the eVGA until the SATA problems are fixed.

CPU = Core 2 Duo E6600 - $310
GPU = eVGA 8800GTX - $650
HDD = 2x150GB WD Raptor's in Raid 0 -$420
PSU = 750W PCP&C Silencer 750 - $220
Mobo = eVGA 680i SLI Motherboard - $250
Sound Card = bluegears B-Enspirer - $110
CPU Cooler = ThermalTake Big Typhoon with Liquid Metal -$50 + $15

You could get a second GTX once the price drops, you need like $300 for Windows Vista-64, you could get 4GB of Ram, and you could get water cooling but I'd stick with a nice air cooling. I'd get a 24" Dell Monitor ($799.99), Logitech MX Revolution ($99.99), & Saitek PK-02 Keyboard ($59.99). You still have a lot more money to spend, so you could even get phase change.

Why not get 4GB of RAM, and a QX6700 too if you have that much cash you are willin to spend? And instead of Exad's Typhoon get a Zalman 9700 instead:

Uh actually a bt will dominate a 9700 any day of the week if properly set up and lapped. I have both and i can definitely tell you that my 9500 is about 12 degrees Celsius hotter on load than my bt. And a 9700 is like 5 degrees better cooling.

Agreed on the typhoon. Much better cooling. Get your hands on a tuniq tower if you can but they always seem to be out of stock. Also, if you plan to overclock I would go with the PC P&C PSU for stability.
