  1. Links+prices would be awesome.
  2. If i were u these would be my changes with reasons stated

    Mechanical/Storage Hdd: No need to splash since u have the nice SSD as boot drive so a something like a F3 1TB/7200.12 1TB (or two) would be fine

    I wouldn't buy a HD 5830 these days let alone 2 and with HD 6k looming and surely the Nvidia riposte as well: beefy HD 5870?

    Mobo could be 870 Asrock (CF) or Asus/MSI

    Case looks is subjective but check out the CM HAF 912

    CPU cooler: Scythe Yasya
  3. go for an intel build, with an i5 760 and dual gtx 460s or 1 gtx 480, if you have your mind set on an amd build, i would change the CPU to an x6 1055T and i would rather just go for 1 5870 then 2 5830s, also read this article
  4. for $1000-1500, How about this? Its $1133.91, shipped

  5. i wouldnt go for the 1090T its not good price vs performance, the 1055T is a better buy, for the same price as an x6 1090T you can get an i7 950, which beats it in almost everything
