If you have DDR3 RAM remove the RAM from the list. If you have a good PSU for CF remove that too.

Don't bother with watercooling, you can get this

The video card is cool and quiet as it is. Lifetime warranty with registration on the XFX site within 30 days.

Cases - this is more a personal preference of the owner, so I will suggest a few gaming cases that are "quiet"; you don't want to listen to a jet engine while you are fragging Zombies in Eyefinity surround.

Fractal design Define XL $150

Budget wise this is a great pick for quiet gaming and keeping the GPU cool

12+2 Phase VRM (for superior OC stability), x16 x16 CF/SLI (3-Way also) $200

due to your budget constraints this may be better $105

I run GTX 570's in SLi and do Nvidia Surround Gaming on 3 x 24" 1920x1200 BenQ's. you definitely want 2Gb of Mem and the fastest GPU's you can afford.
