Ok so this is the first time I have ever built my own computer, so I am not exactly sure about all these parts and their compatibility with each other.

my budget is about $1,400 but I'd like to keep it at about $1,375 or so at the most, but anyways here is my build so far.

XCLIO WTBK ADVANCED ( I have heard this case has some problems with the fans and wires/LED's but i want it for the airflow)

Hard Drive:
Western Digital Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s

External HD:
Maxtor OneTouch 4 Mini STM902503OTA3E1-RK 250GB (just for storage)

Power Supply:

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 Yorkfield 2.83GHz

EVGA 132-CK-NF78-TR LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI ATX

Kingston HyperX 4GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066

CPU Fan/Heatsink:
XIGMATEK Dark Knight-S1283V

EVGA 512-P3-N884-AR GeForce 9800 GTX+ Superclocked Edition

Disc Drive:
SAMSUNG Black 22X 2MB Cache SATA DVD Burner

haven't decided if I should go with Vista or 64 bit XP

My main goal is to be able to play GTA 4 decently enough to enjoy it, I also plan to OC the CPU at a later date. Since this is my first build I just wanted to make sure everything would work together.

Thanks in advance for any help or opinions
