The link to the mobo does not seem to work. Could you give it's code? I think that it should be a P67 or Z68 if you want to overclock the CPU.
The 430 case should fit a 6950 as it says that it fits a 5970 which is at least 11.5" while the 6950 is 10.6" I think.
The leads for the psu are fine for me, they can go everywhere that I need in my Antec 300 case.
You could look at scan for more prices.
The RAM does not seem to be on the QVL (Qualified Vendors List) but that does not mean that it will not work.
The mobo does support crossfire but the second slot is only x4 so you will not get as much power from second graphics card.
Everything else seems to be fine.
You can get a mobo that has either a second PCI-E slot with x8 or x16 depending on how much more you want to spend.
You could consider the Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3 for x8 for about £105. The ones with two x16 are much more expensive.
