Welcome!
That will be a monster of a machine!! You may as well get another 512Gb SSD and run them in RAID 0! :D

The 690 will be more than enough but dual Titans is pretty nice to think about. Sounds like a good plan.

Yeah i am thinking about snagging another Samsung drive lightening quick and plus the price as dropped some since i bought mine.

i had a custom PC before Christmas and which was running Quad SLI with the 690GTX and i didnt rate them really! But the 2 Titans in SLI with 6GB vram is something else ! and OC like a dream

will post pics of the stages of my upgrades when it arrives its currently in Production now with EDD 26-06 which i find strange as its cert refurbed :-/

Everything should fit and be compatible(check specs on board first though ;). And dual Titans = BEAST! Also, you should give *cough cough*, I mean sell, me your 4 GB GDDR5 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 lol
