This looks like a decent M/B, it got a toms hardware recommendation and it will allow crossfire like you wanted:

ATM this is the best bang for the buck imo for a motherboard.
Spinpoint F3 1TB hard drives are still the bomb @69.99
Same as last guy, you can get a dvd burner around 20 bucks.

I prefer the CM HAF cases myself, but that one is fine too. I'd get one spinpoint 1tb and try and fit in a SSD to your budget
