Question Need help with motherboard and processor

Ok I'm new here so I'd like to say hey to everyone. Now to get onto the big issue I'm trying to build a computer for both animation and programing(i'm taking computer science and I'm going to minor in Communication arts). So what I'm trying to say is do I really need dual processors or is Intel HT powerful enough and what motherboard would you choose? Oh and is the Nvidia SLI the way to go also?
