And you linked motherboard to CPU.
Since he is building an ATX build get this

The one Ste posted is ESP12V but it is also compatable with ATX. Save yourself 10 bucks and go with the ATX version. I accidently got the ESP12V version but it will still work with my DFI Lanparty that I got. ( could have used that 20 bucks for a game... but o well)

Umm ya nab a better brand mobo... Some cheap SLi boards ~100-110 can be had from Abit, Abit K8N SLi Gigabyte, K8N SLi boards Many people might not like or think of going w/ them, but I've had a very good time w/ a Biostar board I got for a friend... and from what I've heard/seen the T-Force is sopposed to be a good mobo with some nice OC options
TForce SLi

Otherwise, it's $130 the cheapest DFi SLi board.
The psu suggested is much better, and I'd say go for a opty 165 too. For $40 you can get a DVD Burner, which beats the **** outta an ASUS DVD combo drive for only $10 more.
