A lot of kids at my school do Co-op (getting credit for doing actual work and getting paid). So they work like 5-6 hours a day or whatever and make quite a lot of money. Of course they don't spend much time on homework though.

You have the wrong 6600 gt for that motherboard. Your graphics card needs to be PCI-Express, not AGP. Though I still recommend you get the x800 xl.
Other than that everything looks good and spiffy. Should be a shweet system.
