I would look at a corsair or pc power and cooling for your psu.
tx-2 over artic silver
With that budget why no ssd drive.
trifire is unnecessary for the resolution of you monitors.
Again with budget why only 20" monitors.
Make sure and check for driver support for your tuner card.
I have taken that into consideration.
I've removed one 5870 from my setup, which brings the number of GPUs down to two. I've changed the PSU to a Corsair HX1000W. I'll probably be able to do just as well with something less than 1000 watts, but I might want to add a third GPU sometime later if I ever get new monitors or add another one. And I've replaced the thermal paste with the Tuniq TX-2.
I might replace the i7-960 with a 920; is the price difference between the two enough to justify getting a 960 over a 920?
I used to have an SSD as part of my setup, but the thing cost around $600, and that didn't fit into my budget. Plus I heard that they're not really worth the huge price. If there's no truth to that, I might consider replacing one of my HDDs with a small SSD. On a side note, will adding an SSD affect my computer's RAID? Right now I have a RAID 5.
And as for the monitors, I don't have enough desk space to accommodate more than two 20" monitors. In fact, even with those two I might have to move some things around to make everything fit.
