Gaming/Cad/Trading $1200 + question

I would like to build my first computer that I can demand a lot from. The gaming aspect is the least important part of the build. I'm not sure what the limiting factor is in the build, so what can be improved on in terms of performance and or less expensive parts (without sacrificing quality)?

Question: If I buy a second 1920x1080 monitor, can I plug one into the Nvdia GPU and then have the other run off the i7 integrated GPU? Will the screens still run like a normal extended display should? I would use the other just for google chrome browsing.

Approximate Purchase Date: This week

Budget Range: 1000-1200$

Parts not required: Mouse, Keyboard, Monitor, Windows 7, Speakers

Preffered website for parts: Newegg

Part preference: Intel CPU

Overclocking: No

Sli: Maybe in future.

Monitor resolution: 1920x1080 Asus. May buy another one soon.

Additional comments: It MUST have Wifi, which is one reason I picked the motherboard I did. Quiet is nice. Google chrome needs to be blazing fast.
