My friend wants me to build him a gaming computer,but with a budget of $2000 AU$

I Have come up with

Case:Zonix Blower ATX MIDI Tower case - $95
Motherboard:EVGA nForce 650i Ultra775 LITE 122-CK-NF66-T1 - $215
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 C2D 3GHz 4MB LGA775 - $400
RAM:Kingston KVR667D2N5K2/4G - $270
Hdd:Hitachi HDT725050VLA360 X2 - $420
CD-Rom: LG GSA-H62NBBK -$65

Specs would be:
3.0Ghz Dual core
4gb RAM
8800GT 640mb
1tb Hdd

Would this work alright,and how can i cut costs (i would like to get a better Motherboard and possible SLI 8800's)

the 8800GT is better than the GTS and you save $250
SLI isn't worth it.
