First thing I would suggest, is not SLIing 2 760s. Just get a 770 or a 780. SLI can cause problems sometimes and SLIing 2 mid level cards isn't really worth it because it costs you the same or more than just getting 1 high end card.

To answer your questions:
1.is my cpu compatible with my motherboard? YES

2. is my motherboard new or old ? and should i buy a new one? It is new.

3. is there enough space to all my component so my graffik card dont get too hot? You will have plenty of space with that case.

4. is my motherboard compatible with SLI ? That board does support SLI, but it would be better if it had 2 PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots that could run at x8/x8. That MSI board only has 1 3.0 slot and 1 2.0 slot.

5. is my cooling good enough ? If you will not be heavily overclocking, you don't need a water cooler. If not overclocking or just slightly overclocking get something like a Coolermaster hyper 212 EVO.

6. what psu should i have ? You should go with a quality PSU that puts out at least 600W. I would go with this one:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

7. is my graffik card gonna die faster since its overclocked, and how long are they gonna hold ? A factory overclocked card carries a full warranty and should last just as long as a stock clocked card.

8. does everything like cable come with the components ? Sometimes. Just look at the manufacturer's website and it should say what comes in the box. Or look for unboxing videos of the parts on youtube.

9. if u have seen the case the usb and the audio is sitting a bit way from the motherboard and the case is there a cable u need to connect so they work ? The case will come with built in cables for those. You just connect them to the motherboard.

10. is there enough space between the graffik card to get cooled down ? YES

I would go with this. It would be faster than any GTX card with 4gb memory and faster than a 3gb GTX 780. Only card that can rival it is the GTX 780ti and it costs considerably more.

Not true at all. I am using an HD 7970 myself. Many on here are using AMD graphics cards. Sounds like someone fed you some fanboy bs.

It is the top pure gaming GPU from Nvidia, so they charge more. It is faster than a 290x, but no worth the added cost for the performance difference. Titan black is technically fastest, but it lives a double life as being an entry level workstation GPU.

Unless you are going to be running at resolutions higher than 1080p, you don't need a 4GB video card. Those are for the people running 3 displays or 4k displays. Be aware that the 290x will run hotter than the 770 or 780. Also, if you go AMD, you miss out on Nvidia shadowplay and physx. My advice to you would be to just get the 770 and enjoy solid 60fps gaming at 1080p. By the time you would need to upgrade from a 770 two more generations of cards will have come out.

H80i is fully filled and sealed. It is ready to install right out of the box. The cooler can go in the top or rear of that case. The 290x is rated to handle up to 95c.
