I personally would go for the Vendetta 2 or even a Sunbeam Core Contact Freezer instead of the Thermalright. I'm not saying its not a good cooler, hey its was the king of air coolers for a while, but not anymore. Besides the Vendetta with the Thermalright Bolt through kit included will be cheaper.
I'd have to agree with Charlie on the board, I know your doing a CF which would run slightly better on X38 or X48 board, but the P45 isn't all that behind, the performance of CF on a P45 board is quite good too.
Best bang for the buck on hard drives is the Seagate 640GB, its only like $6 more, but you get 140GB more.
NCIX.com - Buy Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 640GB 3.5IN SATA2 7200RPM 32MB Cache NCQ Hard Drive OEM *5YR MFR Warranty* - ST3640323AS In Canada.
Oh and I hope your going to Price match..
