1) I don't really know about the atx types, but it looks like they might be the same exact thing.
2) Eh, it depends whether you think you can trust Vista. I thought I heard about some problems with the 9600 series card with Vista, but don't take my word on it. You'll only get the full use of your RAM with 64 bit Vista....
3) Overclocking is never necessary. Its more like a geek way of saying I have more muscle than you, or something of that degree. You probably won't need it with what you've got.
4) I think it looks fine. I would try for Quad core, but what you've got is good. The 8800 outperforms the 9600, I thought. It might be better just to spend a bit more on a 8800 than get a 9600. It depends what you're going to be using it all for too though.
I'll compliment you on your high speed RAM though... :D
