If you are simply wanting to ensure compatibility of all the parts you've listed, go here -> http://pcpartpicker.com/p/FEyi , it tells us that the parts are compatible and will draw ~ 466 watts max.

Because of it's feature set.
3-way SLI, 48GB RAM, 2 GbE ports, etc...

Thank you for all of your suggestions and help for a invoice to computer building. I have most likely built a more costly system than I needed. But my systems have been more costly initially but have last more than 10 years. Which is greater than most people I have talk with. Cheap is not better, most of the time. Putting together system and I will be back to you on the results soon. Made a big mistake ordering the key component (motherboard) from a group in Florida and they sent it SmartPost!!!! Hope it comes soon after 11 days in one piece. Don't order any thing using shipping saver. I have talk with a USPS person about Fedex SmartPost and what he said was not very encouraging. Back soon.

In answer to expensive motherboard. Settle for a ASRock X79 Extreme9 ATX LGA2011. Check it out. The reviews were outstanding. I can't way to get it. What a power house. Everything, including the kitchen sink. Also changed to the Corsair Obsidian Series 800D ATX Full Tower Case. Still under the $2300 with two WD VelociRaptor 500GB and Plextor 256 GB SATA III SSD.

It's a ASRock X79 Extreme9 ATX LGA2011 motherboard. It has a kit for 2 USB 3.0 Front panel and in addition it has 2 internal USB 3.0 headers. allowing for 4 front panel USB 3.0 ports. Unit has 8 USB 3.0 operating ports with 8 USB 2.0 ports, 2 front and 6 back. Expandable is the word.

Had to replace my cooler because of space problem. Will be testing temperatures next week. Been working with 32 bit units so long, 64 bit jump will be something. I will keep you all posted. Thanks for all your help.
