I see a major problem already.

The NZXT cases you have chosen are standard ATX form factor cases that support EATX size motherboards. They only have 7 expansion slots and will only handle the motherboards mentioned in Option 2.

In your Option 1 the EVGA Classified SR-2 (Super Record 2) Motherboard is an HPTX form factor motherboard. EVGA even specifies "a case with 9 or more expansion slots is required, 10 for 4-Way SLI". See the EVGA Forums thread EVGA Classified SR-2 Compatible Chassis.

In your Option 2 both motherboards only have 6 memory slots yet you've specified 3 triple channel kits (i.e. 9 memory modules). You'll only use two of the kits. What are you going to use the extra triple channel kit for, spares in case a module fails?

For CPU cooler I would recommend the Prolimatech Megahalems Rev.B if you're planning on overclocking. It's massive and a considerably better cooler than the two you've listed.

Only one hard disk drive? Now there's a bottle neck if I've ever seen one. I would configure the HDDs as follows: 1 HDD for the Operating System and applications, 1 HDD for swap/temp/scratch files, 1 HDD for source files, and 1 HDD for rendered files. Configured this way you will avoid interfering reads/writes to disks, and maintain a steady rendering pace.

All of the applications you've mentioned are much more dependent on OpenGL. CUDA support in AE is dependent on specific plug-ins using these features. AE itself relies on conventional OpenGL features, not CUDA. I don't see SLI being of any benefit to those applications either.

I didn't have the time to think and read all of the posts above but if you work alot with working with huge video files and encoding, you will need a good raid, that gives you a) almost double the HDD speed performance and b) the security to backup your files.

I recommend an SSD Bootdrive that not only contains your OS but also your most frequently used application like you mentioned before (cienema etc)

And of course a raidsystem for more performance

Adding an big external HDD for backup purposes won't hurt you eather.

What about a Blu-Ray burner instead of the DVD drive specified?

Getting a blu-ray burner right now is pointless with blu-ray disc being both costly and rare.. Getting a blu-ray read only drive is more sensible as of now..
