I dont know if it will all fit in the case i chose, or if everything is compatible. I also am wondering if the power supply is strong enough to support the sli stuff?

They are all compatible. Since the MOBO and the case are both ATX, it will fit, guaranteed. Great choices btw!

Thanks, thats a relief, now i am just wondering if the power supply would be strong enough to support two video cards if i decide to get a second 7950 for the sli or crossfire whatever its called

That PSU you have in the op is fine for CF 7950s.

That PSU is actually overkill for just 2 7950's. The 7950 draws 150w at full load, and spikes never go above 180. with a 62a 12v rail, you can run 3 7950's without even going over the 75% load max efficiency window for PSU's.

just a question.You can run ur system smoothly even with a 600w power supply you bought 750w for a future crossfire?

The motherboard you have is not meant for Crossfiring. Get either the Asrock Extreme 4 or the Gigabyte z77-Ud3h.

That case is very nice. My cousin has that. Its very spacious and runs very quietly.
