If the link doesn't work go to public wishlists

I need to buy this today or tomorrow.

As stated, that does NOT work together. Try This motherboard.
Also, do you have any Sata cables? Your mobo should come with a couple, but some don't so I would not rely on that.
I would grab two of These
You may also want a beefier PSU, should you ever feel like adding another video card. This one should do. Also, it's modular so you will have less of a cable mess.
Also, that comes with a few fans, but you may want to add more.
Straight from CM's website...
"Front: 140 x 25 mm Blue LED fan x 1 / 1200 RPM / 19 dBA

Rear: 120 mm fan x 1 / 1200 RPM / 17 dBA

Top: 140 x 25 mm fan x 1 / 1200 RPM / 19 dBA (supports 120 / 140 mm fan x 2)

Bottom: 120 mm fan x 2 (optional)

Left side: 120 / 140 mm fan x 2 (optional)

Right side: 80 x 15 mm x 1 (optional)

HDD cage: 120 mm fan x 1 (optional)

VGA holder: 80 x 15 mm fan x 1 (optional) "

Build to be updated, a reminder to myself.

So this motherboard doesn't work with my other hardware?? I changed my mind about SLI, I'm not going to do it. Am I still okay?

1 x CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply

1 x OCZ Vertex Series OCZSSD2-1VTX60G 2.5" 60GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
1 x ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 AMD Motherboard
1 x COOLER MASTER RC-692-KKN3 CM690 II Basic Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
1 x Galaxy 58NLH5HS8GGX GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 1536MB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
1 x Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield 3.06GHz LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor BX80601950

As for the SSD, my budget is much smaller now than it was. The OS and my music editing software is all I will put on it.

Ugh, well shoot. It's already gone thru. I'm thinking my only option is to send it back once I get it then... Its already been shipped...I sent an email to newegg about what are my options. I'm hoping I can return it and get the correct one with only paying the difference.

Is there anything less expensive than this MB

I won't be having SLI so I'm hoping there is.
