I have these parts on the way for my new build, time to give my son the old P4 3gig machine.
Abit AW8D motherbord
Pentium D 960
2x 1Gig OCZ DDR2 PC800
2 Raptor 74 gig HD's in raid 0
1 Maxtor 300 gig sata [for backup]
Plextor 18x sata dvd burner
Ati X1900xt 512 meg video card
Antec true power 500 watt PS
I am going to try the onboard sound for the time being, may have to go to
a card though if it does not cut it.

Well, I would have posted this asking for suggestions before saying you've already ordered the parts. But hey, whatever works. I wouldn't go with the onboard sound since you have a nice powerful machine anyway, may as well add some good sound for playing games.

What I would have done instead:
Conroe Intel processor (If not, yours is good)
2x Raptor 74GB 16mb cache since they are the same as the new 150GB models.
A Seagate Backup drive, but it's all personal preference on those drives.
Forget the Plextor SATA drives, they are not worth it. A Good BenQ or NEC drive would have given you the same results and not cost you so much.
The X1900XT is a great choice, good card, lots of power, and overclocks to XTX speeds easily.
The Antec True Power is a nice choice.
