If you are going to go performance, go PERFORMANCE.

Newegg.com - RAZER Lachesis Banshee Blue 9 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Laser 4000 dpi Gaming Mouse - Mouse

The Copperhead is 2000 dpi, the Lachesis is 4000 dpi. The Mamba is 5600 dpi and wireless, but the Lachesis is just awesome. Gotta love the pulsating emblem.

1) I do not see a psu on the list. Would recommend corsair 850tx.

2) missed link on cpu heatsink. It is just a link to the i7. I would recommend this Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120 mm Core-Contact Freezer CPU Cooler W/TX-2 - CPU Fans & Heatsinks with needed mounting bracket. Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-LGA1366 LGA 1366 Core I7 Retention Bracket - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

3) I would much rather see a single gtx285 versus 2 gts250's.
I know that sli 250's are benching a little higher than a single 285 for less cost. But, to not have to rely on sli and the ability to bring a second 285 in later is worth it to me.
Here is one that in $30 more than your sli setup. Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-1281-AR GeForce GTX 285 1GB 512-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Again personal preference. If you want the sli 250's then go for it.

4) I cannot really see the need to run 12gb of ram at this point in time. If you need 12gb later ddr3 memory will be much cheaper.

5) OS Vista Home Premium 64bit.

The Core Contact is a great heatsink.

Go with 64-bit Vista Home Premium.

The 850 is the same size as the 520. You will need more power than the 520 if you are going to run two cards.
