Since you're just starting those rims will be fine.
As for tires, Kenda Nevegals or Maxxis Minnions are both nice.

From the look of it, just sell your frame, save some money and buy a new or lightly used frame.
Your part list doesnt look to shabby. What kind of riding are you most into?

Most aluminum frames start to fatigue after about 7 years. Since your not going to be riding super hard it should be fine.
If your hard on your bike after every ride check your chain stays as those types of frames were prone to cracking on the stays.
You should be fine, just regular check ups and maintenance

Yeha a new frame sounds about right for you.
Demos are nice. Lots to pick from though.
