Best to stick with 2 TB or less. 600W is probably not enough power to comfortably run a Crossfire setup. It will most likely squeak by, but if it were me I'd probably go for 750W or so just to be on the safe side. The motherboard will support your Phenom II but check the manufacturer website to make sure you have the right BIOS version in case it's different. Also, you're missing a GPU. You mention you have a new one, but what is it? Oh as for OCing, I'd check out the Overclock subforum and read up there. It'll have all the info you ever wanted and more.
