It's included with the case.
I didn't see a power supply there. It is one of the most important parts of your system.
eVGA 133-K8-NF41 Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail $80 (currently out of stock, however... any other suggestions in the same price range?)

In addition, buying parts piecemeal over a long period of time will impact the warranty on the parts you buy. Some have very limited warranty and can be out of warranty before you even install them. It happened to me once and now when I buy parts to build a new system I buy them all at once.
check out www.buildyourown.org.uk
a great site with great instructions and a lively discussion forum abour parts/prices etc.
Another thing to check out are the "barebones kits" that you can get from tigerdirect.com, newegg.com and various others.
If you were planning to use the power supply that comes in an inexpensive case, I would consider the consequences of what happens when the ps fails.
I would spend another $20 and get a top notch DVD writer such as the NEC 3550A.
Also, for another $15 you can get a 160GB hard drive. 80GB models are on the verge of becoming obsolete. You may not know now what you will use the extra storage for, but it will be there should you change your mind.
You seem to be holding out for an SLI motherboard. Unless you plan to buy 2 identical SLI video cards this will be a waste. You would do better to get a good PCI-E motherboard.
