Yup, get the PII x4 955. Or be lucky and unlock a PII x2 255/250.

When you go Nvidia it's called SLI. Scalable Link Interface to be correct.

For the PSU, I don't find your listed reliable enough. The Antec Earthwatts Green 650W is at $65 and will supply even two GTX 460's well. It's a great deal, and a more reliable PSU.

And indeed, you need another motherboard for multiple graphics cards. I don't feel competent enough to recommend you one on in that pricerange. Basically you just need one that has 2x PCI-e 2.0 slots, x8 or x16. x4 it too less for graphics cards.
Eventually, you may want to cut down on the case. Even though it seems like a good deal.

Your GPU seems good.

Just noticed the PSU offer has gone out of stock.

Instead, you can get this MSI Cyclone GTX 460 768mb combo with a Seasonic S12II 520W for just $189.87 + a few games.
It's a very reliable PSU. I belive it should be good enough for SLI.

May be worth considering.

If he has a good Athlon II 250 X2 C3. He can oc it to about 3.75ghz.
Example
I have an Athlon x2 240 C2 that can oc to 3.75ghz. I haven't try ocing it any high yet.
