Below are the parts I have put on the list so far, and I was told to look into a Graphical card next. Budget is between 700-1200, I will not be a heavy gamer, the purpose of the PC is to run multiple OS's at the same time for penetration testing (info security class).

Intel i7 950 3.03GHz

ASUS P6X58D-E LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Item #: N82E16813131641

CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1600C8D
Item #: N82E16820145224

Seagate Barracuda XT ST32000641AS 2TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
Item #: N82E16822148506

Any help or guidance would be much appreciated!

I would get something like a 5770. It should fit your needs and exceed them a little. You can pick one up for about $99 after rebate.
