Popped caps on motherboard, time to upgrade

Wanted to get some advice on my next upgrade. I currently have a Asus Essentio CG5270-BP003 that I upgraded last year with an Asus ENGTX560 Ti DCII TOP/2DI/1GD5 video card and a CORSAIR Professional Series HX750 power supply. Due to some caps recently popping on the mobo I figure now is a good time to upgrade. I would like to stay with intel for the processor and move to DDR3. Any advise on a mobo/proc/memory combination would be really appreciated. my budget is between 300-500 dollars though I would like to try to stay at the lower end. I would be open to buying another system as well and transferring part of this system into it. I already have a full tower case update on the way so mobo size is not an issue.
