Use the motherboard peterhuang suggested.
Use the RAM BiGyLiLuPdAmIdL suggested. (or Newegg.com - Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail - $50 after rebate)
Keep your current PSU.
Keep your current CPU.

With the extra money you can...

add Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler - Retail (+$22)
upgrade to ClubIT Product - GIGABYTE Geforce 8800GT 512MB 256bit GDDR3 PCI-Express 2.0 HDCP & SLI Ready Video Card Retail GV-NX88T512H-B (+$35)

or maybe upgrade the case?
newegg has a great deal on the cooler master stacker right now, $110 after rebate

heres another great case, $80 after rebate
