The card won't fit even with the full ATX tower case?

It will fit in a full tower. The case you picked is a mid tower.

EDIT: Whoops, I see you have the full tower one... hehe. You shouldn't have any problems then.

Another question: if, in the future, I decide to crossfire some cards, will the 610W from the PC Power and Cooling PSU be enough?

Depends on what cards. If you're talking about crossfiring 2 4850 X2's, which I don't recommend doing, it won't be able to handle that. For $20 more (after rebate) you can get the 750w which will allow you to sli/crossfire all single gpu cards (i.e. not 4850/70 x2, gtx295

Agreed, albeit, its not ever worth going Quad Crossfire or Quad SLI unless you run at such an extreme resolution

Is this RAM any better than the OCZ Platinum ones I picked? I'm getting 15% cashback at Tigerdirect so I'm just curious.

No definitely not. OCZ is a much better brand.

Wintec AmpX is pretty good RAM too.. their DDR2 were cheap, but they used D9 Micron Chips in them, I expect the same out of DDR3

Ok, found a pretty good deal on another motherboard at Tigerdirect, with the 15% cash back. Will the Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R cause any problems in my build? Is it better or worse than the Asus P6T SE?

The Gigabyte has more OC'ing features and overall a better board
