I think this should be based off of 990x instead of dual 5690s prices from newegg
i7 990x ($1050)
evga classified 4-way SLI ($300 AR)
12gb dominator gt 2000 ($350)
4 x gtx 580s ($2000)
1200ax ($280)
dual c300 256gb ($1050)
blu burner ($100)
obsidian 800D ($270)
total: $5400 (didn't include all rebates could change a couple products to cut this down to make room for water-cooling)
this is the base this system should obviously be on water probably dual-loop one for CPU one for GPUs.

i would get a lot of those Seasonic, and Corsair Velvet bags that come with the free Power supplies :D 

Off topic:
isn't it crazy how those systems cost 10k then, but now most of wouldnt pay 300$ for that?
in 10 years all are stuff now is gonna be inferior.
its gonna be weird when 24GBs of RAM is standard instead of 4,
that a GPU like a 6990 would be considered low end,
that you 10TB SSD is running slow at 10Gb/s

:cry:

I'd build my son a $1,500 system and use the rest to pay down his college debt.
