Default FIRST BUILD! Help needed Please! $1.5k-2k

Hey guys glad to be on the forums. This is going to be my first build and I was hoping to get some feedback and some help. My budget is around $1500 to $2000. Here is what I have so far:

Motherboard - GA-EX58-UD3R - motherboard - ATX - iX58 - LGA1366 Socket
Processor - Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor
RAM - OCZ Gold 6GB (2GB x 3 set) 1600
Power Supply - Corsair 750TX
GPU - Sapphire 5850
Video card - Unsure?
Harddrive - Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500gb - not sure
Sound Card - Unsure?
Optical Drives - 2x Sony DVD Burner
Case - Thermaltake Armor Series VA8003BWS Black Full Tower Case
Heatsink - Unsure?
Monitors - Hanns∑G HH-231HPB Black 23" 5ms HDMI Widescreen Full HD

I wanted to know how this build is looking and maybe any suggestions for the parts that I am unsure about. Also, should I get two video cards? Thanks guys!

Ste, your RAM link is the same as your CPU + MOBO combo.

I would recommend this set of RAM,

Newegg.com - G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9T-6GBNQ - Desktop Memory
or

Your motherboard and cpu are not compatible. 1156 board with a 1366 cpu. If you want the i7 920 get the combo that Ste gave you. Great board.
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

Hard drive: If this will be your OS drive I would get the WD black instead of the blue.
Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD7501AALS 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Heatsink get the 120mm instead.
Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120 mm Core-Contact Freezer CPU Cooler W/TX-2 - CPU Fans & Heatsinks
with
Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-LGA1366 LGA 1366 Core I7 Socket Retention Bracket Set - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

sound card:
start with onboard you may be pleasantly surprised. If not you can always pick one up later.

Compatible with win7 64bit?
Considering your build is very similar to mine I would hope so. If not I am in trouble. Yes it is no problems whatsoever.

Usually cases come with fans, but have another place or two for more fans. You should be fine with just the ones it comes with though.

Yeh the armour case comes with 3x120mm fans and 2x80mm fans. You will be fine with those.
