Is this a computer you built or a list of parts you want to use for a build?

You didn't mention the operating system, or the case.

I'm confused, is that a parts list for a computer you're thinking of building or buying? If so, you can do better and you still need a case, RAM, and OS.

Oops I have the RAM:

I have 2 x 2GB Chips of Ram

I don't have the OS yet I'm not quite sure which one I should get because I like XP but now with Vista and the Windows 7 Beta I don't exactly know which one I want.

The Case:

Rosewill R901-P BK

I have started building the computer.

As for the operating system, I wouldn't put Windows 7 on until it is released to the public. You could buy Vista and get Windows 7 as an upgrade when it comes out.

Depending on your budget, I would go with at least 500 gb storage instead of the 80 you have listed, but this is just my personal opinion.
Hard drives a cheap now, not like when I built my system. What about your RAM setup?

You could wait until the Windows 7 RC1 is out, you can use that until the RTM comes out. Remember, you need a 64-bit OS to use all 4GB of RAM. Absolutely, space is cheap so get a larger drive.
