Hmm. The 64-bit OS's aren't really the best choice. They seem to have a lot of driver issues. I'd go with Vista over-top of that... But it's up to you. See what other people have to say.

Great build , I have the 9500 great cooler . I would suggest you to switch your RAM to Crucial Ballistix currently best bang for the buck. And make sure you get a 16MB Buffer HD. Other then that I think it's fine, wait for some more input.

Here you go:
get the q6600 go OEM version from clubbit.
for cpu fan, get the tuniq tower 120.
for mobo get the p35-ds3r(no SLI)
ram-crucual ballistix
for os, i would go with vista ultimate 64 bit.
vista is the new os and you should start getting use to it now...
video card looks good.

Floopy drive, i like that one as far as typos go. But for roughly the same price as the e6850 you can get a q6600 and just overclock it. Seconding the crucial ballistix. I have the xms2 but am probably going to replace them with ballistix at some point.
