Got a TT120 myself, awesome coler if you can find one. Scythe Ninja (good with quiet aka low cfm fans) and Thermaltake Big Typhoon (good for cooling the power regulators and passive northbridge heatsink) are others to mention.
G.Skill comes highly recommended, as does Team Xtreme and Geil.
As for video card, i'm probably more ATi than the nVidia guy earlier...
...but i'd go for a X1950XT if you don't mind a little noise from the cooler. Its a simply fantastic card for the price and beats anything nVidia can offer up to a 7950GX2 (inc 7950GT/7900GT/7900GS and 7900GTX when oc'd). If you're noise concious, then go with a 7950GT with a passive sink, or the ATi alternative is a X1950 Pro. Any of the above will do you well for a couple of months while ATi get the R600 cards out and the DX10 price wars begin
