Default does this look ok?

I'm building a new computer for a friend and was just wondering if these parts are okay. His budget is around $1100.

This is what I have so far, make any changes necessary:

mobo - ASUS Deluxe, ABIT AW8, Foxconn nForce4
not sure which one, liking the first one, but dont really need 2pciex16 slots.

cpu - Pentium D

ram - OCZ Gold Series

case- Sagitta silver/red

That's what I have so far, what do you guys think?
Thanks a lot.

I guarentee that someone is gonna come out and tell you that Intel sucks, and that you should go AMD. I really have no preference, so I wont tell you to scrap Intel

I would go with this mobo, instead

It's half the price, and one really doesnt need SLi, especially when it means spending 2x on a mobo Not to mention, if you go SLi, you'll have to get more than a 450W PSU

Also, do you have a vid card picked out at all?

Thanks.
I would go with AMD X2, but it's gonna cost more and I don't think the PD's are too much worse than the X2 (of course, what do I know)

I was thinking of getting the SLi because he might want to upgrade later and wouldn't have to get a new mobo just for it.

As for video card, waiting for the 7600GT I think. If we have some extra money, I'll get him the 7800GT instead.
