Don't bother with 2x GTX275. Get 2x HD5830 or 2x HD5770. The HD5830 crossfire will use much less power, and it'll be much more powerful (maybe not much more, but it'll be better).

No, you need two more 6-pin PCI-E connections.

Yeah, if you are going to be spending a large amount of money on a video card(or cards) right now you will want DX11. If you are set on Nvidia preorder one of the GTX 480s while you can get in on it early.

What is your resolution? Is there a reason you are set on using 2 cards?

Assuming your PSU has two rails, one of them MUST be over 32A.
