Question Serious Builder ISO Advice on build

Hello! I've recently come across quiet a bit of cash and I'm looking to build a new computer from scratch. It's been a long time since I've owned a computer so forgive me if I don't understand your advice.
My budget is about 1,500-2,000 USD. Shipping 99508 Alaska Anchorage, and I guess I'll start with my build then ask the questions at the end of the post.
And for some reason I can't post links on the forums yet but I'll add the full name of each part.

Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-790XTA-UD4 AM3 AMD 790X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX

CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT90ZFBGRBOX
newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103849

Graphics Cards: 2x SAPPHIRE 100282-3SR Radeon HD 5850 (Cypress Pro) 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 / 725MHz /1440 Stream Processing Units

Memory: CORSAIR DOMINATOR 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM 1600 (PC3 12800) CMP8GX3M2A1600C9

Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s

Case: Antec Twelve Hundred Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case (6 Fans)

PSU: PC Power and Cooling PPCT860 860W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready

My major concerns are compatibility. Will the Mobo be able to use the DDR3 1600 out of the box? Will the Mobo work with the CPU? Are the graphics cards a decent pick? Will that PSU be enough interms of wattage and power connections? I'm going to try to find some tutorials on how to overclock all that I can. I know I can probably bump up each core to maybe 3.6-3.8. Am I over doing the amount of RAM?
