This build would come to about $1958.87 and of course there are components you would want and some you may wish to change , but that is your perogative to do so. I listed three monitors and you can of course change those as well , but on Newegg they have this if you wanted to go over budget;

SAMSUNG MD230X3 Black 23" 1920 x 1080 (each) 8ms (GTG) Full HD Height Adjustable Multi-Display LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 150,000:1 (3,000:1)
$1884.00

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

You could go all out if you wanted to take out a loan to finance this;

SAMSUNG MD230X6 Black 23" 1920 x 1080 (each) 8ms (GTG) Full HD Height Adjustable Multi-Display LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 150,000:1 (3,000:1)
$3599.99

Ahhhh , but it is nice to dream.

For monitors I'd like to reccomend the Dell Utrasharp U2412m for your eyefinity setup. I personally own 3 of these and am well beyond satisfied. Basically the 12m has everything I need in an eyefinity setup:
16:10 resolution vs 16:9 (1920x1200 vs 1920x1080)
Height, pivot, tilt, and portrait mode
Native DisplayPort input
IPS type panel (for increased viewing angles vs TN panels)
Only down side is that it didn't have an HDMI input, but I later used a DVI to HDMI adapter for my Xbox and that works perfectly fine.

The 12m can be found for $350 each (normally $400 but Dell has had them on sale for around $40-80 off for months on end). That would cost you $1050 which for your budget range is a little too high. Here is the unfortunate catch. Dell has a deal where you buy a $400 gift card get a $75 card free. IF you can find 3 friends or family to buy that $400 gift card off you, you will pocket a cool $75 bucks and essentially make the 12m cost only $275 a pop ($825 + tax and recycle fee for 3). Considering a normal TN 1080 screen is about ~$180 and dose not have any of the above features, for a $95 (+ your time in finding buyers) upgrade is a steal to me, if you can pull it off. Good luck! (I had to deal with $500 gift cards several months ago :(  )

2 6970's are the best. you didnt answer my question above though. are you only going to play WoW? because 2 6950's or 1 6970 can handle that

+1 on the 2 6970s.

You can actually play WoW with a 6770.

ya then get the 2 6970's. but if you dont have monitors with native display ports like this- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (i dont recommend the dell ultrasharp series because of there very slow response times)
you will need one of these adapters- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
2 monitors will plug into the dvi ports in the gpu and one will have the adapter into the display port then a dvi into the monitor

i personally think the HAF X is hideous and it lacks fan filters so it should not even be considered. Fan filters are a necessity in my eyes. the df-85 also cools better than the HAF X according to Bit tech

The zalman cpu cooler is overpriced considering it does not cool as well as this cpu cooler- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... this is the best air cooler on the market. you can add that to the build i posted above. the scythe mugen 3 can handle oc's up to 5ghz so it is probably more than enough for your needs

he didnt post speakers or a dp to dvi adapter so add that to his build that is already over your budget

the motherboard i posted is a 12+4 phase board his is a 8+4 phase board. the more the phases the better it overclocks

the vengeance ram will be difficult with the bigger cpu coolers. low profile ram is needed so it doesnt hit the cpu cooler.

The sandforce ssd's are a little buggy. i usually recommend the crucial m4 but the faster plextor just came out. Plextor and crucial makes very reliable ssd's.

the gold rated psu will save you money because it is more efficient. also it is modular which is a plus.

2 dvd burners?
