^ That build seriously looks very imbalanced...
A very high powered CPU + 2 2-Gen old cards + 8GB of RAM on a X58 + an enterprise HDD for a desktop ?

Fill this and paste it here...Will be easy to suggest the things that is best suited for your needs...

^ Hmm...If I were you I wouldnt buy 2 of those cards...
You should have seen on the net that Nvidia is coming up with the Fermi(their next gen DirecX11 card) - mostly by March...So for now spend very little on the graphics card and save money for those...
Or you can go ahead and get the HD 5870s...which am sure will be much faster than the card that you have chosen and are DirectX 11...

Mobo - You can take a look at these boards...
Both can overclock well, as a bonus they support USB 3.0 and SATA 6GB/s too...

PSU - $200 for that PSU ? You can get far more efficient ones for less...
Corsair 850HX

SSD - Buy the retail version of that SSD as they come with 3.5" adaptor...

CASE - You should check out the CM HAF 932...they offer very good air flow and are very well priced too...
