    Are U Kidding Meeeeeeeee, $10K?
    Ok, let build the Ultimate Bad Ass Game Rig, shall we?

    CPU: QX9770 - $1700
    MOBO: EVGA 790i Ultra SLI or Asus Striker II Extreme - $430 - $480
    RAM: Corsair Dominator DDR3 1800 (2Gig kit, unfortunately no 4Gig kit available for this mem) - $700 per kit.
    HD: 4 Hatachi Cinemastar 1TB (2 for Raid 0 and 2 independing as back up and storage) $490 each = $1960
    Optical Drives: LG GGW-H20L Super BluRay Drive - $400 and a Plextor PX-810SA DVD burner - $90
    SOUND: X-FI GamerXtreme Fatal1ty Pro - $150
    PSU: PC & PowerCooling Turbo Cool 1200Kw - $490
    CASE: Silverstone TJ07 - $340 or Coolermaster Cosmos S - $250
    COOLING: High end custom WC or CoolIt System Freezone Elite - $500
    MONITOR: 2 Dell 2707WFPS - $1400 ea = $2400

    The above sys will cost you around 10K, given or take and it's not including all the accessories, keyboard & mouse, OS, shipping cost or import fee and taxes...etc.

    Here are the major online E-tailers for North Amercia (USA & CANADA)
    www.newegg.com
    www.ncix.com
    www.tigerdirect.com
    www.dell.com
    www.lge.com

    If you're from UK then you have to wait for fellars from UK to give you the links.

    Well, that what I would build if I have 10 grands to burn.
    Just a note; Nvidia and ADM/ATI will release next gen video cards by summer this year.

    I thought I did? ...I would go with dual 9800GX2 and leave one spare 16x slot for future upgrade

    It will go over his budget with the Skultrail, this MOBO cost around $800 (I think) at the moment and he has to purchase 2 QX9775 (771 socket) and must use FBDIMM mem (not too many at high speed and choices).

    Considering your budget, you'd be shooting yourself in the foot with a 9800 GX2. As Deton mentioned above, both AMD and Nvidia will roll-out new tech soon, AMD being the earliest.

    Yeah, if you're really building this bad ass rig then start purchase any compomnents that are on special now but way for the video card. Even with the 9800GTX is not even safe either, 9800GTX only side step performance from the 8800GTX.

    There's a rumour that 9800GX2 will be discontinue? The reason I suggested GX2 because it's the fastest single card available at the moment. GX2 SLI beats GTX SLI, GTX 3-Way little better than 2 x GX2.

    That's one of cool WC kit there. Are you planning to OC your rig and WC all 3 grfx cards? If you do I don't think that kit can't handle it. One think I don't like about that kit, it's kinda bulky.

    I personally like a custom build (pick your own parts) watercooling system and all internal installed. That's why I suggested TJ07 case, this case can hold up to 4x120mm rad. If you are going with the Zalman then I don't think you need TJ07, because when you put the TJ07 and Reserator XT together, it's going to be one big huge rig, IMO.

    SLI doesn't support multi monitors, so you can't use more than 1 monitor at a time while gamming. I think it is a waste to get 2 monitors until Nvidia solves this problem.
    I don't know when you are going to build this rig but Nvidia and AMD/ATI will release new gen of video card soon.
