Default Newb...first attempt at building pc

I need some help people...I attempting my first build and I need some info on whether this will be a good build or not?

Antec Nine Hundred Two Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750W
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 3.0GHz 12MB L2 Cache
ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
ASUS RAMPAGE FORMULA LGA 775 Intel X48 ATX Intel Motherboard
SAPPHIRE 100251SR Radeon HD 4870 X2 2GB 512-bit (256-bit x 2)
Seagate ST310005N1A1AS-RK 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
OCZ Reaper HPC 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500)
SAMSUNG 22X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe Black SATA Model SH-S223Q
Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate SP1 32-bit for System Builders
SAMSUNG T220 Rose-Black 22" 2ms GTG Touch of Color series Widescreen LCD Monitor 300
Microsoft Comfort Curve 2000 B2L-00047 Black USB Ergonomics Keyboard and Mouse

I think this is it!

I've posted up some on different forums and some suggested switching the processors to the i7...this would mean I need a motherboard that can handle the i7 and I was looking at the EVGA 132-BL-E758-TR LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard...is this okay?

I mean, hey, if you can afford an i7 build, by all means go for it. If not, a PII build might suit you well.

What's your budget?

You could also save around $80 if you get home premium instead of vista ultimate
But that's up to you
And like other people in that forum said, make sure you get 64-bit
