Default $500 Parts Budget

Need help with some parts regarding my build. I want to be able to play Far Cry 2

Far Cry Recommended System Requirements.
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo Family, AMD 64 X2 5200+, AMD Phenom or better
GPU: NVidia 8600 GTS or better, ATI X1900 or better

Budget $500.00

Parts Needed:
Motherboard: SLI cable and overclockable. Nothing insane just to go from say 200 FSB to 333 FSB.
Processor: Intel
RAM: at least 2GB
DVD: SATA, Black.
PSU: Can handle SLI and dual core processor, preferbably Corsair. The OCZ PSU's won't reach from the bottom of my case to the top of my case. CM690.

I already have a 9600 GT and will get another in a few months or so.

Next Build: E5200 @ 3.6GHz (333x11) | Xigmatek HDT-RS1283 HSF | Biostar TP43D2-A7 | Mushkin Redlines DDR2-1000 @ DDR2-999 5-5-5-12
