Default Help building a computer!!

So, I'm trying to find a decent rig at a low price, I have a good enough case/ PS for my plan but need to sort of confirm that I am getting what I expect


Mobo/proc 160 ECS sli mobo and pentium D 930
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...17542&CatId=14

Ram 71 1GB DDR2 240 pin 533mhz kingston ram
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820144151


Cd/dvd burner 29 generic enough?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827136108

HD 70 WD 250gb
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144417

Temporary GPU 35 Asus geforce LE 64 onboard + some hypercache
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121019

Any suggestions? Criticisms? not a gaming box at this point, but if I put an 8600ultra or two in upon release would it preform well in some games?

Drop that mobo and proc combo, and get this instead:

BIOSTAR TForce965PT LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 Conroe 1.86GHz 2M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail

Or for around $120 if you look around you can find a nice Intel DG965WH board. If you not against ebay you could probably even pull one of those or better for around $80.
