Check out my $850 build in my siggy right here:

It'll give you a lot of performance for the buck.

The i7 isn't needed, the 2600K performs only about 1-2% better than the 2500K in Gaming so the extra $100 is defiantly not worth it for what you're doing.

As for the Cooler I suggest one of these two.
Hyper 212+ http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Hyper-Sleeve-RR-B10...
or
Hyper 212 Evo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The 212+ is fairly old but offers similar performance to the Corsair H50/H70, the Hyper 212 Evo is the revised version but better by a bit.

I suggest getting the new card, 3x1440x900 is a lot of resolution for a single 5830 to handle. Specially since the 5830 is really only equivalent to something between a 6770 and 6790. IF you plan to game on JUST one monitor then the 5830 would be fine. But if not, a new card is recommended. I suggest the 6950 2GB like in my build guide.

Well if that is the case, just stick with your 5830 if when you're gaming with only your 5830. It'll handle gaming well at just 1440x900. If you are just browsing and watching/editing video etc. (Just not gaming) with 3 monitors the 5830 would be sufficient.

Anyways, just check out the $850 I had up their just no need for that GPU and save on the PSU since you don't need that much power, specially with a 5830. Get this one instead.

This'll provide enough power if you ever Crossfire 5830's but give you good savings on cost.
