There are so many options tho that this has been the hardest decision of the computer. I'm looking to stay within a $400 - $500 price range total and I really like EVGA cards. Feel free to throw out other card models and why they are better (for either scenario)
Thank you for the help in advance!
Here is the rest of my computer that I've ordered to possibly help with the decision:
You ask an interesting question which I am happy to answer, and I see that you have gone with a large psu which is good because it allows for great overclocking potential. I believe that you are going for overkill with the 16Gb ram, even with 2 screens, as the minimum requirement of ram for any game can't be more than 3gb, and here's why: A lot of pc owners only have 32 bit Windows which only supports 3Gb of ram, and any game developer will halve the potential market by developing a game which requires more ram. The processor you have listed is great, and you're obviously planning to overclock because it's a "k" version, and the motherboard is of the Z series which overclocks fantastically.I would however buy the max amount of fans your chassis can support as overclocking can get Hot. As for your Gpu, I would recommend a Radeon 6870 crossfire. This is a great option if you wish to enjoy long hours of high-graphic gaming.These Radeons can outperform a Gtx 580 and falls in the price rage of your listed Gpu's, and looking at you system I assume that a Budget isn't a problem. I hope that my advice has helped, if not, then I hope that somebody's will.

You are very correct, i am not building off a budget. While I am doing my best to get the best price for what I am paying and would like to stay within a certain price range, I am more then happy to go outside of that range if the graphics performance is worth the money.
I will take a look at the Radeon 6870. Honestly ive never went with anything but Nvidia before, but on that note, ive never built a computer this massive haha
Thanks again. If anyone has anything else they would like to add that would be awesome!
