Input on Variation on KRyan’s TWF Elf Barbarian

I really like KRyan’s solution to this character concept: How to optimize a TWF Barbarian Elf

I’m looking to build something similar, but I don’t have all the restrictions that the OP had. For instance, I am planning on using the Arctic Template from Dragon #306 applied to a Wood Elf, giving me +2 Str, +2 Dex, -2 Int, -2 Cha.

With those bonuses, does TWF even make sense anymore? If so, are there changes that would make sense to utilize the STR/DEX synergy?

Getting back into 3.5e after a long time, and I’d forgotten that the limitless options are such a double-edged sword…
