Get this motherboard. Newegg.com - EVGA E758-A1 3-Way SLI (x16/x16/x8) LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

I would take the HAF 932 over the 1200.

It won't matter what HDD you put it on, but you would probably wanna put it on the 640GB and just leave the 1TB as data storage.

since it doesn't look like you are overclocking

I think any boards suggested so far is good (even if you are, those are still good boards.)

all have at least 6 USB ports, at least 6 SATA ports, and can do dual video cards with ease, just pick whatever looks good

I had told you initially that the 750watt PSU you chose is good enough since you're not going Crossfire, but I see now that you do intend to use crossfire, and i'm not sure if that powersupply can handle two 5870s.
