Never, ever, ever EVER get an Xtreme Gear PSU, its the cheap house brand for a reason, the 800W unit has 60A between its 12V rails, which is about as much as a good 650W unit, it unfortunately is also an older lower efficiency design with passive PFC which says that its using tech that is 5 years old or more. Pay more, get something that isnt an overpriced doorstop.

One major suggestion about the build, ditch the X58 platform, go to an i5 2500K on a Z68 motherboard, it will likely come out a bit cheaper and will actually perform a bit better.

If you really want a 3 monitor setup you will need 2 higher end nVidia cards or one of the higher level AMD cards, a 6970 can do three monitor gaming, a pair of 6950s would give better performance.
