I wouldn't get the Thermalright Ultra. This isn't even the actual TRUE and a Xigmatek S1283 or OCZ Vendetta 2 will probably match it in performance for half the price. Even the Xigmatek/OCZ is pretty overkill for an E5200.

Also, I'd go for cheaper RAM unless you really want to try to maximize your overclock (E5200 doesn't need very good RAM to max it, unless you want to get the multiplier down as low as possible. Simply running the RAM at a higher speed/tighter timings doesn't do much to performance). Here's a good deal link

And I would get the HD4830 for $90AR. It'll be much faster and should have much better resale value than the 9600gso for only a little bit extra

I'd recommend against cheaping out on a G31 mobo, any decent P35/P45 should be good though. If you don't mind open box, something like this would be awesome GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L

The Antec Basiq is a pretty mediocre psu, I'd recommend something a bit higher quality. The VX550 is great but you could probably get by with something cheaper (haha sorry I don't have any in mind ). However, at the moment the 650TX is only $2 more on Newegg so you might as well get that.

As for the heatsink, Xigmatek S1283 or OCZ Vendetta 2 or Sunbeam Core Contact. They're all pretty much the same, just get the cheapest . I'm not sure about the other 2 but with the Xigmatek, you'll want to buy the retention bracket, link.

Also, no reason to buy XP at this point, go for Vista 64-bit

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116072 E5200 $83
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227267 4x2GB $50
Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131299 Asus P5Q Pro $115
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...9004&Tpk=550VX 550VX $78
HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152052 500GB $55
Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129021 antec900 $110
DVD Burner: $20
GFX: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121277 HD4870 1GB $225

seriously just stick with this. I dont think it can get much better. Unless you want it to cost less e.g. $600 i can remake one for you.

Let me justify the build:

CPU: The E5200 is an extreme OCer. Lots of people get it to 4.0Ghz which is more than enough. Personally i dont think its worth to get the E7300 as they OC to around the same speed.
RAM: cheap ram is cheap ram
Mobo: The Asus P5Q Pro is one of the best price/performance P45 boards out there. If you want to though you could upgrade to the UD3P which is also a P45.
PSU: Its a Corsair top notch quality. More than enough for the reccommended configuration.
HDD: Great HDD cheap and the SpinPoint series really shines. Just google it.
Case: Both the Antec 900 or the Cm690 are good if you want the best performance/price. BUt you can change it to something you like the look of.
GFX: The HD4870 will probably max out every game apart from crysis on the 17" monitor. When you get a new monitor and SC2 the HD4870 1GB will still be able to handle it perfectly. SC2 is going to be optimized for ATi cards so i chose this.
