Would like some help with pc rig, please.

Hello I would love to build a decent computer for gaming/video editing under my budget. I would also like to have this as an eyefinity setup if possible of course.
So far I have been using Newegg and TigerDirect to build this rig but I would like to know what the community uses to expand my knowledge.

All of these parts are just a though, if there are better options I will easily take them.

Max I would like to spend is $500-$700. Then about $150 each monitor to play skyrim,bf3, asylum,2033,new vegas, ect(hopefully one or more in eyefinity). Total no more than $700 please.

I am trying to get the best performance for the money with room to upgrade in the future if possible.



psu: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=332363&CatId=5436
gpu: maybe one of these 2x 6850/ 1x 6950/ 1x 560ti/2x 460
$279.98 (2x 6850)

ram: 2x 4gb

hdd: a small ssd(30gb?) for boot up programs

and a sata for everything else

case: I preffer a case with a side panel that is on a hinge, like this (but is not a must ) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147159
but I would love a case that I can freely remove harddrives/cards without hitting the motherboard or the wires and breaking/bending my parts.(maybe full tower or larger mid towers)
Total so far is: =$914.90 without monitor.

Bundles would be nice but I have not come across any that I liked.

Don't be shy tell me whats wrong and whats good.

I would also like to purchase the rig as soon as possible so I will keep looking for deals and checking on this post.

Thank you for reading and posting any advice/help/guidance.
