If you plan on playing modern gaming, I'd recommend getting the ATI 4850 graphics card, at least. After rebates, you should be able to find one for only 20-30$ more than the 3870 you have. The 4850 is much better, and performs very well in crossfire.

Since you're getting 64-bit Vista, you can use 4 GB or more of RAM. Your motherboard supports 8 GB, if you can afford to, get as much as you can. Other than that, you've got a very good build.
