So, pick out a SLI mobo and a 7800GTX i should use because i don't know what to look for. and yes, im OCing my RAM
Ah, looked at the product title and figured it wasn't, most people don't know about them. But in that case good choice, and make sure to post back if you like it, because I'm really thinking about getting one.

Look above for good recommendations.

Since the mobo will be SLI, will it really need that extra 80 watts on the 200 watt PSU, because $200... thats pricey

200W? don't get one that low.
get a PSU from Antec, Enermax, Thermaltake, OCZ, Ultra, Cooler Master or Seasonic

arg, i was distracted by the $200 dollars, i meant 600-watt, is that necessary or is the 520-watt still good enough to allow a little OCing and support my components?

Just switched previous GFX card with this one:
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16814150105

I'm not sure about the company because I never had experience with them, but it has the highest core clock which is nice also noting it wasn't the most expensive on the list.

New GFX card (eVGA)
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16814130235

and mobo (ASUS SLI premium) I need help with this though, a lot of the reviews say that a lot of cases are restricted to using this mobo because the PCI-E slots are on the opposite side than normal.
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16813131540

I'd still rather have DFI SLI mobo, but i was tired and this was at the top of newegg as a specail promo offer so i got it just to fill space for the time being.

So if ya could help me out, pick me a DFI SLI-compatible mobo with 2x the PCI-E slots and a good LAN for a maximum of $200 (please don't go there heh)
