Per all Newegg prices I am just over my budget....but with some shopping I can get it under budget...via pcpartpicker
here is the link: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/hXk0

I would like your input on this system? Does this work? Are there any major issues with the build?

I know that the i7 processor overkill for most gaming needs, but I normally run 2 or more clients for the game I play (eve online)...with others programs in the background.

I don't know what what a multi client gaming computer is but this build down below includes an after market heat sink (thermal paste included) to allow for over clocking, it also includes a 128GB SSD, and it allows to add another one of those cards later on in SLI. There aren't any reviews on that board down below for the fact it was just recently released less than a week ago.

What I mean by Multi-client is that in MMORG game that I play I have more than one character and I want to be able to play both characters at the same time. So I will have at least two (maybe more)instances of the game open at the same time on multiple monitors.

I was informed that the i7 will give better performance in such cases.

You have to make sure the client even allows for two instances of the game at once since you will only be using 1 build for all the monitors.

It does....they do it in game all the time...right now...I run 2 clients min video settings on one screen and 'tab' between them

Looking to build new computer so I can run them on two screens with higher video settings.

Then definitely the 7950 as aznshinobi suggested. 3Gbs of vRAM is great for multi monitor.
