What resolution does your monitor run at? That will be a big deciding factor on what GPU will work best for you.
What case and burner do you have? If the burner is IDE, I would spend the $25 and get a new SATA one instead. All the old IDE cables do is block airflow. You also need a case with good airflow for a high-end build like you're considering. It just seems a little silly to try to save a buck on the burner and case on a $1500 build.

Power supply which only has 1. Do i need to plug in 2 6 pin connectors?
Here is the list so far.
