This is not a build I would advise anyone to make

The nVidia chipset mb is a poor choice all by itself when any AMD 990 X or FX board can crossfire and SLI ........ and I cant work out if it can even crossfire two radeons.
It is an nVidia controlled board and used to be the only tech that could SLI with an AMD cpu
Even if it can its still old junk that cant ever be upgraded with later processors .

The bottom line is that spending $1000 on an AMD gamer build is not good value , but if you want to dont use that mb

well your ssd is on sale for 69 bucks on newegg after mir. so get a i2500k instead of the amd, with the money that'll save you.

*Gamer builds are simple nowadays. i2500 or i2500k(if you oc).
*Your choice of decent mobo.
*8gbs of ram. Some say 4 is enough, but ram is cheap right now and 8gbs should last you np until next upgrade.
*Best graphics card you can buy + appropriate psu.

Outlander is correct on that.

Check out my $1000 or $850 build here:

Both would offer great performance and you can always just stick with the CF 6870's if you wanted to.

Best solution

Well I would suggest either of these boards for Crossfire on an AMD system ->

or

This should keep you within $20 of what your current motherboard you selected costs. These boards will allow for SLI and Crossfire and also give you USB 3.0 and Sata 6GBps compared to the board you had selected. Not to mention a UEFI based bios.
