You can just use my suggestions. You can remove one 4870 and you'll be under $2,000. I edited my post so you can look at it.

You will get more peformance for your money. It is almost the same build but cheaper. The perfomance should be the same.

I would change the cooler to a Sunbeam Core contact, it cools better and comes with Tuniq TX-2 thermal paste which is better than as5.

Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120mm "Core Contact Freezer" CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

Other than that it looks good.
