Trust me I want the best possible thing I can get, but I know how fast it all gets outdated.
prices are constantly dropping wait a month or two and that rig would be 5% cheaper atleast

Ye its not really suggested to do a raid with two different drives but it is possible depending on your mobo.

I can't really see a reason to go for the duo e6600 when the quad q6600 is the exact same price, and will probably outperform it in a year or two with all the multithreading in Apps and newer games. And I wouldn't drop to a 19" monitor for to sole purpose of saving 100$ when he has a good amount(too much) money to work with. the samsung 226bw or similar 22" monitors arent all that expensive, and much better looking >.> and the only real reason I can see for gettign vista 64 right now is if you want to run 4gigs of ram or more future quad support? Course I'm not informed as to all the differences between the 32 and 64 so don't quote me on it.
