Default Opinions on build?

Howdy all! New to the forums here. I usually do a lot of browsing rather than posting but it's time for me to post. I've had my current desktop a bit too long and I'm looking to build a new one. I'm planning on reusing my DVD/CD-RW drive so I've left that out of the build. I'm trying to keep it under $600.

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103704
Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131402
Hard drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152185
Video card: http://www.newegg.com/Product
Memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145263
Case+PSU combo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811156062

Total: $625 - $35 mail in rebates = $590.

Also, I've got a Audigy 2 sound card in my current PC. Would that be better than the on-board sound on the Mobo?

And I've got to get a operating system. So that'll be another ~$100 or so. I've got XP on my current desktop and Windows 7 Pro on my laptop. Would it be smart to just get Windows 7? Thanks all!

And if there is a way to lessen the cost to near $500 without too much power loss, I would love to hear your suggestions.
