Preferred Website(s) for Parts: wherever cheapest
Location: Dallas
Overclocking: No
SLI or Crossfire: Want the option for down the road but only single GPU first

Additional Comments: Basically, I want the cheapest build that will allow for me to play most (but not all) games on 5760x1080 eyefinity with Medium/High settings as well as a system which shows little to no lag in basic MS Office calculations

    I would think you would be at medium settings with that many pixels and a single graphics card
    is an older model 7970 but essentially the same
    Id add an aftermarket cpu cooler to the build so you can overclock to at least FX 8350 speeds .
