here you go. No OS, but under $900 incl shipping and $35 MIR. leaving the SLI option open for the with the GTX 560 drove up the cost of the PSU required.

has everything you asked for OCing CPU, SSD, SLI option, case with 4 fans /controller and Nvidia GPU.

I really dislike the Zalman Z9, and it's pointless to get an SSD that small without some secondary storage solution to back it up.

I like the Zalman z9+ and my build is a reflection of what the OP asked for.

Personally, I would drop the SLi requirement and the OCing CPU and get a i5 3450 or 3550 and smaller PSU with the savings buy a HDD for storage and maybe up the GPU a little.

I would go with g-unit's build. That GPU is a pretty low end one. Sometimes it is better to get a good value for the $ than what the OP asked for.

That's essentially what I did on the build I linked to - it has all of that and a way better GPU than a stripped down, reference 560 is. If you don't need OS that build is a little over $800 and gives you room to get an SSD or an even better video card.
