Default First Intel Build Suggestions Please

I have been an AMD fan for many years and will most likely will still be one for years to come but I have acquired some parts and I think it is time for my first Intel build since I already have two AMD based systems. Im only looking for suggestions and don't want this to turn into a warzone between AMD and Intel so lets play nice. Anyways this is what I have acquired so far:

Memory: 2 Gigs Corsair XMS DDR2 800 PC2 6400
Power Supply: OCZ StealthXStream 500 Watt
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon 2900Pro 512 MB 256 Bit GDDR3
Hard Drive: Western Digital 120GB SATA
Case: Cooler Master CM Black Stacker 830

Since I have never built an intel based system I am completely in the dark. I was wondering what someone would suggest a processor/motherboard combination. I am looking to only spend 300 and must be compatible with the above mentioned parts. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Thermaltake Shark
OCZ 700W GameXStream
Asus M2N32 SLI
AM2 X2 5600
Corsair XMS 2x1GB
Western Digital Raptor 150 GB
2xBFG 7950GT
