^ Yes...but IMO not worth it...
Instead, sell off the 6GB DDR2, get a good AM3 mobo with 4GB DDR3...better upgrade path...You can also instead get the 955 instead of 965...

+1 to gkay09 for selling the DDR2 RAM(DDR2 is getting expensive.You can sell it for quite a decent price.)

Get a DDR3 + AM3 Mobo.

^ ebay, craigslist to name a few...

You can also check this combo...Comes with a newer southbridge with SATA 6GB/s and USB3.0 and is X6 ready...
X4 965 + ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 AM3 AMD 890GX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0

And 4GB would suffice for a gaming PC...

^ Why do you want 8GB ?? Really unless you will be doing PRO photo editing/ rendering and 3D work, it doesnt make sense...

As for that mobo, no it is not extremely important that you get that mobo...but it is more upgradeable as it comes with SATA 6GB/s and USB3.0 and also supports x8x8 Crossfire...
Why not get the X4 955 with that mobo ? It will certainly save some money and difference between the 955 and 965 is minimal...

But still if you want a cheaper option, then the mobo that you listed also is fine...
Check this one too...

No...The i5 is slightly faster than the 965, but the platform would be overall little costlier...
