With an SSD as large as that, you can probably fit your OS, all of the programs you use, and quite a few games.
I'm currently running on a 40GB SSD, and I can fit Windows 7 Ultimate, the Adobe CS5 Master Collection (~10GB), Microsoft Office (1GB) and the 15-20+ other programs I use. I even have around 5GB free! However, I disabled quite a few features of Windows (disabling Hibernation saved me 2GB, I reduced the pagefile to only 1GB, etc). And I moved all my files (documents, pictures, games, videos, etc) to a separate hard drive.

Actually, a better question would be, how many of each do I need for my cables?
I doubt you will need any of those, as they are just extension cables. The only thing you will need to buy (most likely) are some SATA cables to accommodate all those SSDs. If you like the look of individually sleeved cables, you should check out this guide. It will be time consuming, but believe me, when you finish your rig will look fantastic.

The white LEDs will look AWESOME in your HAF-X. I'd definitely get a kit if I were you!

I find it curious that the OP doesn't mention how or where he is getting the i7 990X (??)!

In fact, I'm waiting for the 990X to be released as well and I can't find it anywhere.

So how is this hypothetical build going to become reality if the 990X is not yet available?

Yes, they are extension cables. I can plug in my original cables into them, and hide it. Then run only the extension cable to the connections. This way I get professional grade sleeving without the work. I still don't know how many I'll need of each kind though. Also, I'll be getting the two meter white led lights.

The problem with that would be cable management. The HAF X is a great case if you want to keep your cables organized and out of the way, partially because it is MASSIVE. However, if you have to run a bunch of unnecessary extension cables through the case then cable management will become 10x more difficult. Additionally, if it isn't done right it will kill your airflow, which will cause build-ups of heat in your case.

Isn't there a back panel where I can hide everything?

Check out this thread, from a couple weeks ago. As you can see from the pictures, Machiyariko custom-sleeved his PSU, while Gerik did not. You can also see that Gerik used quite a few extension cables. The more cables you have, and the longer the cables are, the more time it will take for you to make your case look presentable.
If you want the custom sleeved look, you should actually custom-sleeve it, instead of relying on unnecessary extension cables.
