As powerful as the effect Jessica Alba has on a man lol you'd probably be good to go for an extremely long time with this build. I would kill to have this build.

My Jessica Alba build consists of this, as I am not in America, prices and that newegg site are irrellavent to me as they do not ship to Australia.

Case - Antec 1200 v3 (Nice case with heaps of room)
PSU- Antec High Current Pro 1200w (Some say the corsair ax 1200 is better but the choice is yours)
Graphics - 2x Asus GTX590's why settle for 580's (Would have got EVGA except they are not in Aus till atleast the end of the year)
CPU - If you have the dollars and looking at the 1366 chipset socket then go the i990x for sure.
MB - Rampage III black edition.
RAM - Kingston Hyper X T1 Black Edition 3x4gb 1600mhz (Highly Overclockable)
HDD - Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB Sata3 Connection 64mb cache.
SSD - Vertex 3 OCZ 240gb
Asus BW-12B1LT Bluray drive
Asus - DRW - 24 B1LT DVD Rom Drive
Koolance CPU-370 Water coolng block for CPU as well as RP-1000BK pump and reservior. (Also tubing and nozzles required)
Cannot wait to see Jessica once this rig is complete, build it an enjoy also...

You didn't say what your build was for. If it was for gaming I wouldn't spend anything more than what this rig costs:

The i990x is overpriced and overkill unless your doing insane video editing stuff. Get the 1155 socket
2600k: Newegg.com - Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I72600K

Overclock it if you want with the help of this Cooler - Noctua NH: Newegg.com - Noctua NH-U12P SE2 120mm SSO CPU Cooler

Case - Corsair Obsidian: Newegg.com - Corsair Obsidian Series 650D (CC650DW-1) Black Steel structure with black brushed aluminum faceplate ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

GPU - PNY GTX 580: Newegg.com - PNY VCGGTX580XPB GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 1536MB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
You will only need one of these for now unless you game on 3 monitors. Lifetime warrenty on these cards.

PSU - Silverstone 1000w: Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE ST1000-P 1000W ATX 12V v2.3 & EPS 12V 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
This will give you plenty of overhead if you want to add another 580 in the future

RAM - G.Skill Ripjaw X Series 8GB: Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
Games won't use more than 8 gigs of ram currently

HDD - Samsung Spinpoint f3: Newegg.com - SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

SSD - Intel 510: Newegg.com - Intel 510 Series (Elm Crest) SSDSC2MH120A2K5 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
One of the fastest SSD's avaialble

Motherboard - ASUS Sabertooth: Newegg.com - ASUS SABERTOOTH P67 (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

DVD drive: Newegg.com - ASUS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS - CD / DVD Burners


Total = $1875 before tax. This system is top of the line, without getting parts for the sake of spending money, and without skimping on products.
