That will be my "build" in a week or so, am i missing something? Like a power exstension cord or a socket 1366 mount? Like this : CCF mounting bracket

(I plan on using some cable managment in the back of the antec 1200 so thats why im asking if i might need a power exstension cord, any other exstension cords i should look into, which brand?)

No, you don't need any extra cables for your GPU. That PSU is major overkill for your system, though. A Corsair 750TX or 850TX would offer plenty of power for that system even if you added another 4890 in crossfire.

CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Retail $119.99 - $20 MIR

CORSAIR CMPSU-850TX 850W ATX12V 2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply - Retail $139.99 - $20 MIR

You could even pick up the high end modular 80+ silver rated 750HX or 850HX for the amount of money you were planning on spending on that 1000W PSU.

yeah i dunno why i overdo on the 1000w, im just afraid my system wont get enough power since im adding a couple of things, nzxt sentry, cold cathodes and such, so thats why i upgraded the power supply to 1000w, dunno if a 750w will be able to run all the add-ons

None of those accessories will use enough power to justify a 1000W PSU. A quality 850W PSU is still more than enough power for your system.
