That board has the older SB600 southbridge, you want the newer SB750 as it really improves Phenoms overclocking. 790FX/SB750 board.

The 790FX boards don't support SLi, so I'd suggest you go with a GTX 295.
You need to be running 2560x1600+ to justify the price of this card though.

Serious overkill, you don't need anyway near this much power, it's only going to draw max ~400W at any one time. How about this one?

I don't really understand what you're going to do with that...
