everything checks out. But its kind of off balance..you have a good gpu and cpu but a terrible mobo...you should up your budget a bit and get something better.

NCIX.com - Buy ASUS P5K SE ATX LGA775 P35 DDR2 PCI-E16 2PCI 3PCI-E1 SATA2 Sound GBLAN Motherboard - P5K-SE In Canada.

That would be a good choice for the price. I know its a bit over 100 but it would be worth it.
