I can't seem to get the hang of penny pinching, so I'd like a little help. I can't find suitable parts.

I current have
(MSI Motherboard, P9M890-M/L - I think this is it, if it's wrong I'll post it.
2GB of Crucial DDR2-533 RAM.
3.2ghz P4(HT)
500W CoolerMaster PSU


I want to replace all of it and I preferrably want a quad core proc, and a PSU that'll support all of it and more later.

I want a mobo that will open the option for SLI in the future.

I want RAM, preferrably from Crucial, Mushkin, or Corsair.

Preferrably all with good ratings and under/around 750 dollars. Not past it either, don't include shipping.

Thanks,
Aerocow

The Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3x series are VERY nice and robust boards. SLI rarely makes sense, since you can just buy a single graphics of the next generation that outperforms two of the previous generation cards in SLI mode.
Here's a nice PS for $90 AR w/free shipping: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
