Well i would go with another motherboard that one is good but only when it works almost all of the Asus AMD boards are good but have a tendancy to come DOA. I would also go AM2 the price difference is only about 5-10 quid and am2 is better offers more upgrade potential newer motherboards etc.

You can get an x1950pro for less than £150, or a GT for only around 120 1900s are much better than the x1800s totally different league which is why ati dont make 1800s anymore.

Everything you picked would work all you parts are just about a year off and the new stuff doesnt cost anymore or less than the old stuff most of the time.

That particular series is actually pretty solid. Just make sure you're going with the SLI Deluxe and not the A8N32 SLI. That huge heatpipe on the chipset instead of a fan makes a world of difference.
