I had originally thought of going XP32bit. But about 100% of the population told me to get my ass with Vista 64bit. so that was enough to change my mind pretty quickly i guess.

Just looking at your new build again and had a couple more thoughts.
HARDDRIVE - You could get a much faster and decent size HD for about the same money either the Samsung Spinpoint F1 750GB or 1TB are both super fast and reliable drives and very good value. Also the Seagate barracuda 7200.11 (someone mentioned it earlier in the thread) is a very good, fast and good value HD. - Seriously consider one of these or even two smaller drives in RAID if you feel adventurus.
CASE - A few people mentioned that this case is overpriced and you could do better for much less, i aggree. For that money you could almost get a CM Stacker or Cosmos (both excellent cases) or for less money you could get an antec 900 which is super cool (temp and looks) and well modable. You could even get a midrange ThermalTake or Coolermaster and spend the extra cash modding it out.
OS - Good choice on Vista 64 Now.
Just my thoughts any way. Its going to be a damn fine rig though whatever you choose from anything listed in this thread.
Good luck mate.
