Is this o.k for a good HTPC?

I've been offered a few bits to start building my first htpc, they are: a quad core Q6600 processor, an Asus P5K pro mobo, and 4 gig of pcz 6400 ram. I am looking at adding a Gainward Gtx 260 Gpu to go with this lot.
The bloke is after £200 for the bits. I don't need a really powerful HTPC, cause that is all it will be used for, as i have a Sony Vaio Fw12(?), that will be used for everything else.
I may play the very occasional game, so was looking at adding a Gainward Gtx 260 Gpu to go with this lot.
Any comments on this lot, i;e is it good, will it peform HT easily, & will it be good enough to play the odd game at a decent level?
I am really new to all this stuff, so any help or advice would be gratefully apprieciated
P.s; I also have a dual core conroe E6850 3.0ghz, if that is any good.:confused:
p.p.s; It also comes with Vista 64bit.
