I wouldn't go SLI right now. With new cards comming out it'd be an even bigger waste of money unless you have 2 budget cards.

well, the P5N32SLI Deluxe SE is an alright board, from what I've heard, that's a good build, I reckon.

sorry I can't comment on the aftermarket heatsink, I wouldn't suggest anything less than watercooling and I wouldn't know anything other than watercooling, best of luck to you.
