Depending on what it's for .. SATAII isn't really necessary imo, you can save yourself some money there. For this build and that video card also, the motherboard is a little overkill, possibly save you some money there too. Other than that the other parts I think look fine.

At some point in time ill be getting a new vid card...just dont have the money for it now...and i have a couple other HDD going in there...i have another 320, and 250 that im going to use as data storage.

as far as the Q6600 goes im not going to get into OC yet...just because I cant risk frying anything.
