or

GIGABYTE GA-890XA-UD3 ATX AMD Motherboard

^ I would suggest many changes to your build...

CPU + Mobo
X6 + ASUS EVO 880G
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

CASE + OS
CM 690 Black + WIN 7 - A very good case with all black interiors...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

PSU - You cannot SLI with any of the boards that you have chosen...
Also I would rather suggest you to stick with a single powerful card...
OCZ Fatality 550W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM - Same

GPU - Now with the money saved from the above and with some additional, get this card - GTX 460 1GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Or GTX 460 768MB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
The Newer Fermi cards, which are comparatively more efficient and have very good performance...
So you wouldnt need to go with multiple cards too...
