Just be warned!
1) that playing with resolutions higher than 1920x1200, even a GTX 460 in SLI will hiccup.
2) For 2k++ I would wait a couple of months for ATI's 6xxx series or even months for Intel and AMD's new chips (Sandy Bridge etc.)
If you wait now, you can always wait later too. New hardware is always coming out...

a 460 in sli will work perfectly in anything but the most extreme single monitor resolutions. 1920 x 1200 is not extreme. trying to drive 3 monitors in a video game at 1920 x 1200 each will create a multi screen resolution that will cause the graphics cards to hiccup.

anyone see NCIX has the Gigabyte UD9 Mobo and i7 930 bundled together for $699.00? thats buy the mobo and get a free i7 930 chip. i wish i could blow $699 frivolously.

So for the same price as one of your Selected Mobos and CPU's you could have the UD9.... just saying.

and the UD9 fits in the Haf X.
