after this i hope its wont have to upgrade for the next 2-3 years. thanks for taking the time to read comments and suggestion will be appreciated
 
Although I appreciate that you don't need a quad core, you would be better served with a i7 920 and an X58 motherboard in this case.

nVidia chipsets aren't terribly popular around here, and apparently nVidia isn't real happy with them either, as they are getting out of the business and just licensing SLI for new boards.

With i7 or PII you'd be able to upgrade in future. I'd say that's worth the $190 difference.
You mentioned something about a "bug" for the i7s. I've never heard of one aside from the TLB problem, which I'm still unclear about, but I'm pretty sure they resolved it before the chips came out.

im confused now because once i buy my items i wont be buying anymore for another 3-4 years by the time im sure there will be better CPU than I7 so why pay $200 for something i dont need its like buying a car and not having a licence to drive it not that i dont have a licence just my example =)

The 7 series nvidia chipsets are flaky and have a lot of issues, so if you want to SLI, then you should really go with the x58 chipset, otherwise its a roll of the dice with the 7 series motherboards. If you aren't set on SLI, then consider going with a crossfire setup with a 4870 1Gb instead of the GTX 260, they perform very similarly...Or just forget about a multi-GPU setup and just go with a P45 board and that GTX 260 you already own.

And to be honest I find the x58 platform to be quite stable...the only problem I encountered with my i7 was coming out of sleep mode, sometimes it wasn't too happy about that, but I don't really want it to go to sleep anyways so I just disabled that and I have no problems.

what issues are you talking about can you be more specific if you dont mind i dont know a lot about computers really i just want to build the most powerful so it would last for a long time i did my reviews on quad vs dual tech pros are saying that dual is the best choice right now cuz games are not utilize for quads yet and prob wont be for another 2 years or more and dual cores are cheaper too i also seen a lot of 780i built on youtube and they seem pretty happy about it but anyways since everyone is saying i7 is future proof i hope they are right and i hope it last for 5 years without lagging or im gonna be really upset for paying this much

which is the best i7 mobo out there i "DONT" want to overclock so i dont need the extra features i will run 920 on stock

Is there a reason you want Nvidia GPU's? You can build a Core 2 on a P45 chipset and use 2 ATI cards, which will be identical performance wise as the Nvidia cards...its really the best route to take if you don't want to spend a crapload of cash right now. I would do this if you want to go with an E8500:
