^ Any real use of that PSU ?
The setup that you have would at the max utilize just half the power of that PSU...
Also with HD 6870 you can go only Dual-Crossfire, so frankly that PSU a total overkill...

Also why do you need a 3D monitor when going with ATI cards? AFAIK 3D gaming is not famous on ATI cards...

looks like a good build, like gkay09 said I'd tone down the PSU (way overkill!), what about getting a slightly cheaper monitor and running 3 in eyefinity?

You don't need 1200... Just pick up an 850HX from Corsair, much cheaper and fully modular

Check out the NZXT Phantom for a full tower, just see if you like it
