You only need 450W+ for that setup, other than that it looks fine.

I plan on crossfireing later on but what should I get for wifi, what is the best way of getting wifi on my mobo, pci-e?

That motherboard isn't really designed for Crossfire, it would run at x16/x4. I would get the Extreme3, that runs at x8/x8 so it won't cripple the second card. For Crossfire, you will want 600W+ so 750W is fine I guess.

EDIT: Personally I wouldn't game on a wireless connection, they can be slow and unreliable. If you have to, I would stick to a reliable name like Cisco.

I would try www.aria.co.uk too, it tends to be the cheapest for me.

Indeed they are slow but im a tad to far from my router so should i just get a wifi card and put it in the x4 pci slot?

You will want to put it in a PCI-e x1 slot unless you can go with a powerline adapter/homeplug instead.
