Well, Ultimate is the highest Vista package they offer. If you get the 64bit version then then you could go up to 4GB of RAM. I've not used Vista very much so I'm not the one to recommend what version to get.

Their budget was 1000 - 1200, so you could do:

Newegg.com - Intel Core i7 920 Nehalem 2.66GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Newegg.com - G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

Newegg.com - EVGA 896-P3-1255-AR GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST3750330AS 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

Newegg.com - Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG Black 22X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 16X DVD+R DL 22X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 22X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe - CD / DVD Burners

Newegg.com - PC Power & Cooling S75CF 750W EPS12V SLI NVIDIA SLI Certified (Dual 8800 GTX and below) CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

All awesome, top quality, latest and greatest parts. This build will last years, with plenty of room for expansion. Total is 1190 before 75 bucks worth of Mail-In Rebates, and I think it's very much so worth it to spend the extra cash.

As for the operating system debate, Vista Ultimate is the most expensive version, but not worth it. You're better off with Vista Home Premium. All of the extra features that Ultimate has will just use more system resources, and won't really benefit you at all.

Yeah, definantly go for Ethans great build if you wanna spend around your previously stated budget, but considering his main uses are only downloading off the net i thought there was no reason to spend over 1K.

Heck a Pentium Dual Core is overkill for that.
