Upgrading My Desktop

So I am going to upgrade my is what i am going with:

Intel BOXDP35DPM LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard

ASUS EN9800GT HB/HTDI/512M GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported

hec X-Power Pro 600 600W Continuous @ 40°C ATX12V V2.2 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 2.33GHz LGA 775 95W Quad-Core Processor Model BX80580Q8200

I am also going with 8GB of ram.

Only thing let to decide on it CPU cooling.

Linux will rock and I will be dual booting XP(maybe Vista) so that I can play StarCraft 2 when it comes out.

Comments/ Suggestions??

If starcraft 2 is your only concern, wine might take care of that.

Also, might want to consider vmware server on baremetal and run linux on a virtual instance.

I am pretty sure wine will eventually take care of it...And I have no desire to run vmware server.
