Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Video Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Also, are these compatible with the motherboard?:
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Hard Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Also, if I had 2x those Video Cards (if they are compatible) and all listed above, what would be the minimum/recommended PSU Wattage I would need?

Also, since the motherboard is so gigantic, what case would I need to get to fit it in?

Sorry for all the questions. ^.^

Why would you need that Mobo for? What is your primary usage gonna be? If it's gaming, you can go with a much cheaper but equally good Rampage III, or ASUS P7P55D-E Pro or ASUS P6X58D Premium

It's highly unlikely that you'll be needing that board if you don't even know that it's gonna be compatible with the GTX 460/470/480.

Mushkin Enhanced Redline 6GB (3 x 2GB) is all the RAM you'll ever need.

And why a 600 GB velociraptor? If it's for gaming, get a smaller, cheaper velociraptor/SSD for games and a Samsung Spinpoint F3 / Seagate Barracuda / WDC Caviar Blue / Black for storage.

And what are you gonna play at what resolution to merit 2 GTX 480's?

1. Are really gonna get that Multi-SLI board?
How many GPUs are you really planning to plug into it? Only 2? than what is theuse of having multi-SLI? if you are gonna use only 2 GPUs?

2. 4GB RAM/Slot? Then you will need at least 3 of them (remember the 3 channels) for 1366 mobo, which mean 12GB RAM in total. Do you really need that much? Gaming rig doesn't need that much, 3x2GB should be enough.
Note : For Intel 1156 and AMD mobo you will need 2x4GB or 2x2 GBRAM (2 channels)
, 4GB is enough for gaming.

3. Raptors? Forget them! Get an SSD for your master partition and a normal big capacity HDD for your data.
