Default 1st Post, new build, what do you think?

Great forums! Saw everyone else posting their proposed builds, so I thought I would play along as well. Tell me what you think .....

1 x Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 Quad Core Processor LGA775 2.66GHZ Yorkfield 1333FSB 12MB Ret *IR-$50.00*
1 x Thermalright ULTRA-120 Extreme 6 Heatpipe Cooler LGA775 Heatsink *Fan Not Included*
1 x DFI LP UT X48-T2R Intel X48 ATX LGA775 DDR2 2PCI-E CrossFire SATA2 RAID 1394 Sound 2GLAN Motherboard
1 x Mushkin XP PC2-8500 4GB 2X2GB DDR2-1066 CL5-5-5-15 240PIN Dual Channel Memory Kit *IR-$25.00*
2 x Diamond Radeon HD 4870 512MB GDDR5 PCI-E 2XDVI-I Video Card *IR-$10.00*
1 x Antec Nine Hundred Mid Tower Gamer Case 900 ATX 9 Drive Bay No PS Top USB2.0 1394 Audio
1 x Corsair TX750W 750W ATX 12V 60A 24PIN ATX Power Supply Active PFC 120MM Fan
1 x Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition 64BIT DVD OEM
2 x Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 3.5IN 500GB SATA2 8.5MS 7200RPM 32MB Cache NCQ Hard Drive
1 x Samsung 203S TruDirect 20X SATA DVD Writer Lightscribe Black OEM W/ Software
1 x ASUS 16X DVD-ROM Drive SATA Retail Box W/ Black & Beige Faceplates

The one thing I have really been going back and forth on, is the ram, Was eyeballing the Mushkin RedLines ( I think that is what they ware called) at first, but "kind of" settled on the faster XP as the CPU and board are both rated for 1333mhz, good or bad idea?

All thoughts are appreciated.
