well the great majority of us here will tell you that two 8800's will keep you from upgrading longer, BUT it's not worth the extra cash because having two graphics cards isn't twice as good as only one. Basically the best option for you would to buy the best graphics card out there and then upgrade to the best again and just keep doing that when you want a new graphics card...just try not to do it as much as nosboost (haha).
But in all honesty, buying a computer so that you don't have to upgrade is stupid and a waste of money. what you can buy now for 7.5K will only cost 3K for it's equivilant within 1 1/2 years (my guess but it's pretty realistic). Swapping parts out in a computer and upgrading is VERY easy. you just need to spend 5 min. reading through the manual before trying to put the part in if you don't know what you're doing and you'll figure it out. Parts only fit in a certain way so you can't really screw it up if you read up first.
2-3 monitors...i don't see why you should. 2 is pretty cool but 3 would be a little pointless unless you use programs which can utilize 3 programs. i'd suggest getting 1 big monitor for your main applications (games, movies...whatever) and a smaller one for just other stuff so you don't have to minimize cuz that's a lot more convenient.
I hope we've convinced you that it's much better to just get a 3-4K computer and upgrade when you want later on...but if not, hey that's cool. it's your money man, we really don't care what you do with it, we're only giving this suggestion for your benefit.
