You probably don't need to spend quite that much on the motherboard unless there are some very specific features it has that you want. Try one of these instead:

Buying the RAM one stick at a time isn't the most efficient, it's easy to pick up an 8GB kit for $30 these days if you watch for sales. There will no doubt be some good deals to be had around Black Friday.

You actually will probably need more wattage if you're planning to SLI in the future. Something like this would do: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1750bnlg...

Swapping motherboards would give you enough room in the budget to buy an 8GB kit up front and also upgrade the PSU.
