For non multi GPU set ups there is 100% no need to pump so much into an i7 platform - if you are hell bent on Intel get the i5 750 but for gaming rigs the AthlonII X4- PhenomII X4 (that is if looking at quads only) will serve you well at a very wallet friendly price point ( if it matters) 80+ certified PSU with active PFC, 7.2k RPM Hdd as well hehe

drop down to a cheaper CPU and put the money into better GPU.

grab a Phenom II 955, in gaming it performs just as well, but with the cheaper mobo cost as well as the saving on the processor itself, you can put that toward other components.

change the PSU too. get a corsair one.
a PSU is the one part you do not want to skimp on.

The moment one buys a boat, it becomes "2 feet too short!" - considering this, and your intent to add cards for crossfire/SLI, I would recommend Corsair HX-850 Modular PSU - you may want to do fun stuff like over-clocking too!

Cooler Master HAF 932 - EVGA 141-BL-E760-A1 Classified - Intel i7-920 DO @ 2.66 GHz (OC to 3.35 GHz) - CM V8 - Corsair CMPSU-850HX 850W RT - EVGA 896-P3-1171-AR - GTX 275 R (GeForce) - Corsair Dominator DDR3-1600 – (6x2GB) 12GB Model CMD12GX3M6A1600C8 - Windows 7 – 64-bit - Seagate 1TB x3 (2 of these are in RAID1 for data) - ST31000528AS - Two R/W DVD - Linksys WMP600N Wireless dual band PCI card
- Scythe Fans Controller - Logisys Multi card reader - Dell 2208WFP 22” LCD Monitor - Bose Companion II Speakers - External backup: Seagate 1TB

I agree... It is better to get a tier 2 unit:
http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx

Is there a reason you want Windows-7 ultimate? There is very little that home premium does not give you that is useful to the home user.

If you love the NZXT case, then fine. But if you want a better cooling case at half the price, look at the Antec 300 illusion model:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I would also suggest that you install an oem cpu cooler up front. Your system will run cooler and quieter. Any decent one will do, they cost <$50.

A 1tb drive will not cost much more, and will be faster. The denser platters will transfer data faster from the outer cylinders where you will load the OS.
