Default cant decide need some help

I just sold the following system to my brother in law

E 6300
WD 250
22 LCD
Pioneer DVD/RW

Now I plan on buying a new system I have everything figured out but the CPU and MB

Here is my planned build so far:

22 LCD
SG 250 16MB cache
8800 GT
Corsair 520
Pioneer drive
2 GIG Crucial DDR2 800
WD 500 GIG 16MB cache HD (already have)

Undecided part:

CPU choices-
XEON X3210

MB choices-
MSI P35 Platium LGA 775 Intel P35
abit IP35 Pro Rev. 1.1 LGA 775 Intel P35

Looking for a combination that will allow me to download/MS office/surf/play music/edit picture & video and play CSS without any slow down. I also dont plan to upgrade anytime soon maybe 1.5-2 years after this build.

Any suggestions or experience with the CPU's or MB's llisted above?

Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 / XIGMATEK HDT-S1283
G.SKILL 2 x 2GB DDR2 1066
GTX 260
SG 500GB WD 640GB
Corsair VX 450W
Vista Ultimate 64-bit/X-FI Music
