Would this be a good setup? Im mostly interested on the MB/CPU/PSU and battery






Also i'll be using a Arduino/Arbotix and a motor controller for controlling motors, and servos.

Anything i should change? or look into?

Edit: I want to build a robot, that will create a map of its location using the kinetic, also i want to add 1-2 hands to it, that he can use to grab objects and open doors... Hands will use servos.

Your question is still vague. But you are missing a way to do some I/O and a motor-controller. Look in to the ros serial package and get an arduino (for instance) and a big motor controller.
