well i am gonna say this.... and others will too.... You should wait for 4 month than build a computer. the core 2 duo and the upcoming quad cores rape amd so intel is the way to go. The reason for the wait is mainly the cpu and the gfx cards. DX10 is coming out and with the introduction of quad cores you will see huge drops in price on dual cores. the 6700 and the 6800 are not worth the price difference IMO a 6600 will sufficee for all your gaming needs.
I like the fact you take cooling seriously zalmans are amazing. However for the amount of money you are spending on this rig, water cooling should be considered an option cause your parts are gonna generate a lot of heat.
