Do you plan to OC in the future? If not you don't need such a beefy mobo based on the parts you are getting/planning to upgrade to. Those boards are intended for extreme enthusiast who plan to drain every last cycle out of their parts.

What the purpose of this build? You should fill out sticky form, link in my sig.

You can save a ton of cash with a few changes.

Forget that mobo, waste of money really. Get a Asus p6x58D-E or GA x58 UD3r. Both have same features for a ton less.

Dominator is a waste of money. Best 2000mhz RAM kit is g skill trident $185

However, you're perfectly fine with a 6 gb ddr3 1600 pi kit as well. $155

Really don't need a HX1000.
This XFX 850W BE is more than enough for sli 470's.

Case is a more personal choice, but I wouldn't spend that much on a case.

Cooling wise unless you're adding Rads, stick with air.

It's silly to buy a 470 now if you plan on upgrading to ati later. Also 6xxx gpu's coming out later this month.
