That will work nicely, but what power supply do you have? You should get a 750w 80+ bronze if you want to SLI.

That motherboard does not support SLI, only CrossfireX. The second PCI-Ex16 slot is only x4.

Yes. Per the specs as listed on Newegg.ca as well as it's own spec sheet on the ASUS web site, The ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0 motherboard does support SLI. It has 8 USB 2.0 headers and 2 USB 3.0 headers. It also supports the AMD FX-8350 processor though a BIOS update (1006) is probably required.
