The build looks good. Don't forget you'll need a 64-bit OS to use all your RAM.
Where are you buying your parts? The faster WD6401AALS is currently on sale for the same price as the WD6400AAKS.
Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM
Get it while it's hot if you have the option of buying from newegg.
