Default Some Suggestions

Hey all.

I've been out of the loop for quite some time now, and am finally looking to upgrade.

The two components I am very confident in wanting to maintain, are linked below (CPU & GPU). But I'm not so sure about memory and motherboard. This is coming from a G. Skill and DFI AMD fan, but overall I just want something that provides the best bang for buck (I'd like to spend ~400 on memory (2x1Gb setup) and motherboard combined, hopefully 450 max).

Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 Conroe 2.33GHz 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail

Newegg.com - EVGA 320-P2-N817-AR GeForce 8800GTS 320MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

Thanks!
