Updating MB/Processor/Memory OpSys

I am running the following configuration on a desktop about 3 years old, and would like to update the processor to an Intel i7, new MB, 64-bit Windows Pro, and either 16-32Gb of memory. I would like to keep the cost below $400, excluding the operating system, and appreciate any suggestions.

  1. Well, that is a little tough to do since the new i7's are $320, which leaves you 80 for a MB and RAM...
