This is what I'm planning on getting:

2 gpus
hard drive
cd/dvd drive

I also plan to add my 2 1.5tb hard drives

What motherboard would go best with this setup? I plan to overclock a little. USB 3 and SATA 6Gb/s are likable, but not necessary.

^+1 to the hell_storm2004 suggestion.

The 850W is only necessary for a GTX480 SLI the GTX480 SLI can be handle with a 650W I'd save a little money with this Corsair 750WTX

What about this? Is it better, about the same or worse?

If I were to want a motherboard with no USB 3 or SATA 6Gb/s, would these 2 choices be equally as good for my setup?

The MSI GD85 looks good but for the same price u can go with this ASUS P7P55D-E Pro that is a better mobo.

Between the MSI and ASUS without USB 3 and SATA III I'd go with the ASUS by far.

I hope to buy the whole system around black friday taking advantage of all the savings I can.
Here is the final product:

I will buy whichever is cheaper on the day I buy it, unless I see another big sale for the antec 900 two
antec 900 two case $130
antec 600 case $85

I will buy one for now, and when I need a 2nd one, I will buy another
gtx 470 gpu $295

i-5 760 cpu $170

I will buy whichever is cheaper on the day I buy the final products

motherboard 1 $180
motherboard 2 $140

4gb of 1600 gskill eco series ram $96

I will buy which is cheaper on the day I buy the final products
corsair 850w psu silver certified $140
XFX 850w psu silver certified $150

I currently have 2 1.5tb harddrives and will get a
samsung spinpoint f3 1tb hard drive $75

cd/dvd drive $22

Total cost is approximately $1025

will this system play in high video settings with 1920*1080?

@OP: The $180 mobo you linked is the same one i thinked in my first post. The RAM links aren't working for me. Just would like to say get GSkill 1600MHz CL6/CL7 RAM's. Save the $10 on the PSU and get the Corsair. Its quite a PSU. Rest is fine.
