Ok well 24" would be better get you the full performance out of the gtx285's in sli and its a bit higher res then a hd tv so you will be impressed by the beauty of it all, If your sure I can't tempt you with a 30" with twice the res of a tv or would that not get the WAF (wife approval factor) . This is an extremely good monitor;

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 2443BW Black 24" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 20000:1(1000:1) - LCD Monitors

Have you chosen a case or case style yet? Look through these two lists and tell me which ones you like say a top 5. Don't worry about prices just want to get a feel to what style you like then hopefully we can find a medium between price performance and looks.

Mini-itx

Get this psu for your main gaming pc
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-850TX 850W ATX12V 2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

Once you choose on case can pretty much wrap it up. For an external get this
Newegg.com - ICY DOCK MB559 Series MB559US-1S Aluminum body w/ partial plastic 3.5" eSATA & USB 2.0 External Enclosure - External Enclosures & Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST31500341AS 1.5TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive (bare drive) - Internal Hard Drives
And try and use esata whenever possible as its much faster then usb it supports both so you do have intercompatibility
