If your not OCing the CPU choice is fine.
If you are OCing there are other far less expensive "Windsor" core options.
Other 2x1m L2 cache ...
X2 5200+ AM2
Various X2 Opteron "Santa Ana"
Or, even the .65nu X2 AM2 with the 2x512 L2 "Brisbane" Core X2 3600+ or X2 4000+

I would either lose the Tai Chi w/water and go with the Tai Chi and a decent water setup or just go with another case that has good airflow. You will be very disapointed with the Thermaltake BigWater. Do some searching for info on it and you will find that it offers no improvement over air cooling.

the 8800GTX's here in Australia are over $1000 so im not planning to spend more then $600 on a GPU

Can u please link the Crucial and the G Skill Memory please?

Also in concern to the water cooling, can i get a water cooling kit under $200 that will mount on the side similar to the tai chi water cooling part?

Probably not. If you just want it so you can say you have watercooling go ahead but it does not perform well and performs even worse with an oc. Stacker is a great case and offers lots of options for air or water.
