Tigerdirect still has reference model 2Gb 6950's for the easy bios unlock cost is about 300 with shipping. I like the gigabyte z68 UD4 board and you can get $25 combo savings when you buy it with the processor.

Welcome to the forum. Looks pretty good. Get a 2500K instead, then for a PSU a Corsair TX750 V2 would be good. What's the total right now? You may be able to sqeeze an SSD in, otherwise just grab a 1TB Spinpoint F3. Crossfire is running two radeon cards simultaneously, SLI is the nvidia equivalent.
