get a nvidia card with that motherboard, it makes no sense buying a sli mobo and getting a sti card. get a 7900gt or gtx. or switch to a crossfire mobo. other then that it looks good. and get a good psu with all of that.

AMD 3500+
1GB PC3200
ASUS Motherboard
7900GT 256

ignore what he said about it being pointless getting an nVIDIA chipset and an ATI card. there is no point getting an ATI chipset unless you are using Crossfire as in my opinion they are less than proven and aren't quite as stable as the well known NF4 chipset. perhaps you could forego the NF4 SLI set though?
