Well, if you're wanting to run Crossfire, you're going to have to make a couple of changes. The motherboard you selected is an SLI board for Nvidia cards and the power supply does not have enough power for a Crossfire setup.

A nice board would be the MSI K9A2 Platinum

You'll need at least 550W power supply for a Crossfire setup. This combo will work for you: NZXT Apollo Black ATX Mid-Tower Case with NZXT PP-600 600-Watt Power Supply

i would suggest taking a really good look at a Barebone Kit
like this one
2.66 quad core
600w psu
crossfire ready mobo
2 gigs of ram
and a great and very easy to work on case

then all you would have to do is add your gpus
hdd and sound card

just my 2 cents though
If you think you can, you CAN! If you think you cant, your right.
