I say get the xigmatek rifle over the zalman cooler...cost less, and does almost the same work

and get the 780i FTW board if you want 708i

only thing I would change is from air to water cooling, in my opinion its not worth it unless you want to show off, but since you have a huge budget, you might as well get it.

you don't get watercooling just because u can afford it. You have to want it so your willing to monitor it and do maintenance.

Yes it will

Don't get Water Cooling unless you really good with this stuff and know your way around a PC really really well (if you're new, get a lot more experience before adopting a Water Cooling Kit)

Don't get an e8400, its not worth it, games are getting more Quad-Intensive and you'd be better with a Quad.

Change the Cooler to a Xigmatek Rifle, the RAM to this:
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

and the video card to an HD 4870

Please don't double post, as there is an edit feature that lasts 24hours

Ditch the Antec 1200 for a NZXT Tempest

Stick with the Q9450, or get the Q6600 if you're going to overclock

or you can wait for the HD 4870X2 and get a Asus P5E Deluxe

Get the Xigmatek Rifle as I said in my post before, with the RAM I told before
