What's your budget for the chip and mobo together?

I'd say it's looking good, but I might go a different route on the processor depending on how much you had to spend.

In that case I would go with a Q9550 and UD3P. That would put you barely over your budget, but well worth it IMO.

Q9550 - $299 @ Microcenter or $319 from Newegg with Free Shipping

UD3P - $117 after rebate from Newegg
