I7 930 Build for 1500 or Less

Hello, I would like to build an i7 930 computer that will cost at or under 1500.
I do some video editing, decent amount of gaming, and just heavy multitasking in general.

I would really appreciate any feedback I could get for the parts I am listing.
Great air cooling and a silent full tower case preferred :) 

-I was thinking an EVGA X58 MB, Would also go with an Asus X58 also.
Must be SLI/Crossfire Capable.

-2TB Storage. Most likely two 1tb WD Black HDDs and possibly an ssd to add to those..

-Graphics card able to handle around 30fps on Crysis on High Settings.

-i7 930

-700-800w Power Supply (Suggest anything that would run the system without any problems and something that stays cool/quiet)

-A Samsung 24" + Monitor or other Reliable brand.

-Razer Lycosa and Razer DeathAdder 3.5g.

-Full Tower Case with great airflow (and quiet)

-And 1600mhz Memory, G-Skill, Corsair, OCZ preferred.

Thanks for helping! If I happened to have forgot something please add it.
