personally i would sell the xbox 360 (especially if it means a nice monitor)

though about the build

1) ditch the crappy water cooling and get a good air cooler, its cheaper and works better (i suggest the Sunbeam Core Contact Freezer)

2) switch the Phenom II X4 965 for the 955, it overclocks to the same level and is basically the same chip just one multiplier lower, which you can raise since the 955 is also a black edition (unlocked multi)

3) switch to G.SKILL ECO Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 for the ram, about same price, lower latencies, lower voltage (all for better over clocking)

Just to be contrarian, keep it, and build a PC. Just wait a little while longer while you save and keep enjoying the 360.

Doesn't Microsoft keep some things exclusive to the XBox?

I agree with the keep its. I've been using gaming PC's and consoles pretty much forever. But then, I'm the really rare sort who has no trouble with either kind of control scheme (probably as a result)
