Default 1st build in years.. and New!

What's happening, Canucks?

I'm new around here, so Hello!

OK, onto buisness. This is my first personal build in a large number of years (As a reference, the last computer I build used SDRam, AGP Graphics, and had 2 USB 1.0 interfaces).

So, anyways, the computer finally died. But, it was a trooper, and still played DoD:S amd CS:S like a champ.

So, this is my idea of a new build:

I'll be buying mostly local (Fredericton, NB), with fill-ins from NCIX.
I'm looking to spend about $1000 CAD, give or take some.
I'm a bit of an Asus fanboy (always have been), but can stomach using MSI Mobos.
*Will only use Corsair RAM, unless it's not compatable with the MoBo*
Mostly simple gaming (Day of Defeat:Source, LotR Online, Dawn of War, some newer games), with some Music Production

Corsair Graphite Series 600T
ASUS P7P55D-E LX Motherboard
Intel Core i5 750 Quad Core
ASUS GeForce GTS 450
Corsair XMS3 4GB DDR3 2X2GB DDR3-1600
2 x Seagate SATA HD, 320gig, 7200RPM
 2 x LG 24X Super Multi SATA DVD Writer

Windows 7.

Now, will this be fairly straight forward for what I want it to do, or should I look for other components?

Mainly, Windows 7 64 or 32?

Thanks in advance,
