Intel Core 2 Extreme QX 6800
Asus P5N 32 SLI Deluxe
XFX GeForce 8600 GTS * 2 SLI
Corsair Value Select 2*2 GB 800mhz ddr2 ram

You gave been GXified
Get the fastest multi core CPU & 3 GB RAM with it. What application will u use ?
U will need 64bit windows if u want to use more then 4 GB RAM.

for graphics card, just get any OpenGL 2.0 complient gfx card, even a Geforce 7300GT is good enough with 256 MB Video RAM.

SLI is useless for compositing.

don't go for Win64 you will face lat of bugs while working 32 bit ver of Win will be fine..
Yes is true don't go for SLI..
If you have time wait for DX10 cards to arrive..
i wud suggest go for a vendor instead assembling for a well tunned system as ur budget will permit..
