Pick up a cheap vid card. I have two HTPCs with ATI 4xxx graphics and they work perfectly. I don't know if there is any advantage with a higher card except that AFAIK 5xxx and up can also pass audio over the HDMI. Kingnubian has some links above. Just pay attention to the cooling solution as some cheap vid card coolers can be really noisy.

Aside from that, the rest of the system looks good enough as is.
Q6600 @ 3.83GHz w/ D-Tek Fusion
Asus P5Q-PRO
2x 2GB PC8000 Mushkin Redlines @ 1020MHz w/5-5-5-12 timings
EVGA GTX 280 (SC?)
OCZ Gamer Xtreme 600W PSU
Cooler Master Cosmos on water
