I have basically the same build and I love mine.

I have
Intel I7 2600k @ 4.4ghz (will go to 4.8 but requires higher voltage so not worth it IMO
Asrock Z68 Extreme4 - really like the board plenty of fan & sata connections bios
is nice
Gskill 16gb 1600mhz ddr3 cl 9
Sapphire 6950 2gb flashed to 6970
Ultra M923 case
2x crucial c300 64gb ssd's in raid0
2 x WD Caviar black 1tb
1 x seagate 1.5tb
lg blu-ray burner
logitech G15 keyboard & MX revolution mouse
Acer 22'' 1080p monitor
Genius 5.1 surround sound - cheapo but works decent

You would be better off with a 2500K processor which you can overclock rather than the 2600

A 650 watt psu will run that machine well

You could build this yourself and save money

If it was me, I'd get the 2500K, ~600W PSU and a HD6970/GTX570 to push that 24 monitor.

I am probably going to SLI later though
