Default Help on build

Well, I've decided I want to upgrade from my DFI LP UT SLI-DR Expert and 4800X2

I've been out of the loop as far as hardware goes for a few years now, and I am not sure which is the best choice. I don't have a set budget, but I probably won't do anything over 5,000.

My current thoughts are
  • nVidia 9800GTX 2-way SLI (Not sure which one I should get, so many flavours)
  • Thermaltake -Something- with Watercooling.
  • OCZ or Corsair DDR3 4x2GB (Also not sure which ones to get, Looking to pay less then 600-700 for two sets of 2x2GB)
  • I already have 5 Seagate 7200.11 500Gbs, so I don't need any HDs
  • I have absolutely no idea which motherboard to get, I'm looking for the best though, I will be doing 3-way SLI eventually, and may be over clocking, I want to have the option at least.
  • QX9650
  • Not sure which powersupply is best these days, I'm using an Enermax Modular 650w which has served me well. I am guessing I will need some major wattage to overclock this with all the stuff I want to put in it (3 way SLI)
Any information/critiques, or suggestions on what to get would be very much appreciated!
