Great build! You should consider not adding another graphics card. P55 is a budget line and crossfire won't double the performance as it would the price.
Otherwise upgrade the CPU to an Intel I7 930 (+80$) and mother board to Asus P6TD Deluxe (+100$) and add 2 more GBs of RAM (+90$). Then you will have native crossfire support.
Then upgrade the display to ASUS VW266H (+70$) to play at 1200 resolution.
That would give your crossfire setup the performance boost that justifies purchasing it. I would rather skip all that and just add 200$ to get a single ATI HD 5870 and the ASUS VW266H. What do the others think?
