Default Taking advise to Build. Please Advise

Ordering from NewEgg. Any suggestions? Did I miss anything, beside the sound card, which I am not going to order. I am not 100 % sure of compatibility. Will I need to buy cables? Sorry about being a doorknob with the newbe request for help. This is the first system. Thank you to those on the forum that had been answering questions that have given me the confidence to now build.

Don't be a douche this guy came here for help, And I am going to help

Yes everything will work, and eVGA and Leadtek are the two top producers of graphics card for Nvidia chipsets, so either one is fine

You may want to reconsider the CPU, an FX-55 is a waste of money if you know how to overclock, 3700+ (San Diego core) is a good cheaper choice, but the FX-55 is still better, but overly expensive

The A8N Sli by Asus is one of the worst SLI boards made, if you want the best board it's the DFI Lanparty SLI-DR
You can also get different SLI board's from MSI and Abit which kick Asus's *** front, right and center, Asus for AMD processors sucks
