Ok so i guess scratch the sound card.

the 965P chipset is better for the lower c2d you say, but what if i upgrade to one of e6320 or e6420 or possably e6600.

That G.Skill ram i found didnt look very high quality, maybe u can link what your talking about for me?

You won't need to upgrade your processor, as it would be a waste of money. The others that you listed aren't a significant upgrade from the e6300. Also the ram I suggested were:
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
wow...I just saw these at $159.99

Also, the more i read about SLi the less i want to do it. I could reduce my costs by going without a SLi Mobo and PS... thoughts?

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-965P-DS3 LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
That's a non-SLI board. SLI isn't really worth it, unless you play at extremely high resolutions.

A little....go for the 550W version. That is enough power.
