Default The mother of my i7 Builds (56k lulz)

I have Finnished this build, but still am unsure what i want to do about Video cards so im stuck. Please feel free with feedback on what you would like to see on a build like this.

This has been a really fun project cause i chose all my favorit parts. The video cards im not to excited anymore cause they change so fast and ive seen them all, so im having a problem picking something. Temporarily i use a XFX GTX260 Black Edition untill i figure out what i want.

Specs:

CoolerMaster ATCS 840 Black
CoolerMaster V8
Cooler Master 4 Additional fan kit
Corsair tx750w PSU
Corsair Dominator DDR3 6GB 1600
NZXT Sentry LX Fan controller
Intel i7 920 OC's tp 3.2ghz (Using Step up)
Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Paste
Asus Rampage 2 Extreme
WD 640GB 7200 16mb(Returned the 2 Corsair SSD's in RAID 0)
Samsung Super Multi Drive
Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit

Video card ???????

I would like to see you throw in SLI GTX285's and overclock that i7 920 for real.

or maybe a pair of 4890s might be nice

3dgameman sells the product more then reviewing it. But besides the point it looks like a great case. Where do you get all this money from, I'm curious.
