I wouldn't get a PSU that comes with the case... you'd be better off getting the case for $50 and spending $80 on a separate PSU instead of buying a $127 Case + PSU.

I also don't think the P35 chipset supports SLI, so no, that board should not support SLI.

I've also never seen much about that cooler... so you might want to go with one of the more recommended ones.

The ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro probably would be sufficient, though, it wouldn't be recommended if you wanted to overclock that Q6600. I think the Tuniq Tower 120 would be a much better choice.

I also think it's a bad idea to buy a motherboard already planning to have to upgrade it for something you'll want in the near future... unless you plan on upgrading to the next socket motherboards, which would require you to buy a new CPU and RAM as well.
