That site doesn't have a very broad selection for motherboards so finding a better one in your budget is pretty impossible. Also, SLI is for Nvidia cards, Crossfire is for AMD cards.

I suggest a different PSU as I don't think I'm the only one around here who doesn't trust CM PSU's.

I would check out MSY and ARC for shopping as well.
If there is one nearby you can always save on shipping.

Some suggestions:
$125: MSI Z68A-G45 (G3)

$119: Antec EarthWatts 750W
$129: Silverstone 750W
