Need Advice on a New Rig (component help)

I am looking to get a new rig. I want to build a system that offers great speed, efficiency and is still affordable. I will be using this machine for web design, graphic design and some light gaming. I mostly use Adobe Creative Suite 5 Products which can be a bit power hungry (sometimes have 10 programs open at once). I power two large Samsung 27" monitors. I would like to get a video card that can handle it. Maybe crossfire? Here is what I am thinking about buying, but I could use some advice. I am debating about spending the extra on the 5870 video card and also debating between the i7 950, 930 and AMD 1090T.

Intel Core i7 950 Processor
Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64BIT
(dual) XFX HD577AZNFC Radeon HD 5770 Video Card 1GB GDDR5
Western Digital WD15EARS Caviar Green Hard Drive - 1.5TB, 3.5", SATA-3G
CoolerMaster HAF 932 Full-Tower Case & Ultra X3 ULT40311 1000-Watt Power Supply Bundle
Corsair Core i7 Dominator 6GB PC12800 DDR3 RAM - Tri Channel, 1600MHz, 6144MB (3 x 2048MB)
ASUS P6TD Deluxe Intel X58 Socket LGA1366 Motherboard - Socket 1366, ATX, Audio, PCI Express 2.0, USB 2.0
Pioneer BDR-205 Internal Blu-ray Disc/DVD/CD Write

How does this config look?

Thank you in advance.

  1. I dun see if just light gaming CF/SLI is needed - a single card could do dual displays as well
