You can build this but i have some questions.

If you are not going with a dual video card SLI setup, but instead a non sli single card why have the sli motherboard. I think it would be easier to buy a single sli ready video card and run it. The cost is the same.

This is just my preference but i would look into the cedarmill 631 processor instead of the prescott simply because the cedarmill is 65nm and should run cooler than the prescott. I will be getting a cedarmill that i ordered in a day or so to run in my new build. Your Mb can run either one.

Heres a webpage on powersupplys that is interesting.

I would go for a different vid card, an x300 or x700 as they are just as good but cheaper even though they are older.

I wouldnt bother with the SLI at all get a single card mobo as they are cheaper, and if you are going for cards in the x1300 range you wont need sli.
