The brand of motherboard is not so important. People who get hung up on brands are limiting their options.
What IS important is the chipset, and you are getting warm there Mimic.
If you have chosen the Via chipset for a specific reason, then fine, but that's not the latest via chipset for socket 939. The 890 has some advances over the 800 series, not the least of which is PCIe support.
You are still looking at mainboards supporting AGP graphics, you need to move on from there. The Graphics card you chose simply won't fit into that mainboard.http://usa.asus.com/...-d/overview.htm
Personally, I wouldn't use them at all and I would go for either an nForce4 Ultra or an nForce4 SLI chipset, with a leaning towards the Ultra.
Check this one out as an example: (and a fine example it is too!) (no WiFi)http://www.asus.com/...455&modelmenu=1
The ATI X600 graphics card is very poor for gaming, see my post above for minimum spec. You cannot skimp on the graphics card if you want gaming performance, even the fastest PC won't produce graphics without a decent card.
I can't stress this point enough, anything less is a waste of money and will leave you with inadequate and less than enjoyable performance. The little bit extra for a good graphics card is not that much money in the overall price of the system, but it makes all the difference in whether or not your PC will perform as it should.
Summary of your spec:
CPU too slow
Mainboard still has outdated chipset
Outdated AGP bus (should be PCIe..... PCIe video cards are slightly cheaper as a bonus!)
Graphics Processing Unit inadequate. (X800 minimum in ATI GPU's, 6600GT minimum for nvidia GPU's)
Graphics card won't fit in slot
