Thinking about a 775 Mobo to hold me over for a while

I currently have a Dell XPS 720 with an E6600, 4GB RAM, 8800 GT, on Vista 64. The computer isn't what it used to be which wouldn't be so bad, but I can't overclock. That got me to thinking about buying a barebones PC to swap all of my components to, but instead I'm leaning toward getting a case and getting a decent 775 motherboard that I can overclock my current components on. Hopefully that will give me enough power to hold me over for a while before I make the commitment to a new board that support i5 or i7. I just received my new 4850's in the mail so I'd like to optimize those cards. I'm not sure if I need to run 2 pcie x16 or if the pcie 2.0 is worth it. Either way I'd like to be able to run my 4850's in crossfire, but I don't want to spend a ton of money. Some of the ones that I have seen are in the $130 range or so. Any suggestions. The hope would be to run my components I have until I'm ready to make the jump
