I know there are probably tons of threads like this every day, but I was hoping that some people with a bit more recent experience than I could offer some suggestions/criticisms for the following build. I haven't put a PC together in years and I'm not as familiar as I'd like to be with modern hardware. I'm trying to keep it in the area of $1,500.
Right, my apologies, I knew I left some stuff out. I'll add it now to help resolve any confusion.

ok 2 580's (in the future) might be a good choice since their price will go down. but you will be wanting the newer version (just look at the 480).
2 560 ti's will probably be a better choice they give more performance than the gtx 580 for less. you will save some money and put it towards gpu's in the future.
