I have heard/read great things about Bosch dishwashers, and from what I can tell Wolf seems to be quite a bit more reliable than Viking. I am pretty sure I have crossed Viking off the list.

Hood, I have a Vent A hood, is very strong and relatively quiet. if the stove will have a grill or if you plan on doing any high heat cooking, get the most powerful hood you can afford. I would cut back on another item and put the money to a good hood. Fridges are all over the place, sub zero/viking etc look good, but you'll get better storage, use and value from other brands, assuming you have kids.
Thanks for the info, I want the high end look to my kitchen, budget isnt a huge concern but would like to be reasonable (I dont need the highest end stuff).
For dishwasher not looking for the 2 drawer thing, just normal one, may go w/ bosch as mentioned above.
What did your hood run installed? I need to get a free standing one, as my range is in the island.

And, can't stress this enough: Get Open Burners!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why open burners over sealed?
