3000 dollars is overkill

i5 3570k and z77-v pro will be more than enough for gaming

CPu cooler will be a phanteks heatsink.

R4 case is my personal recommendation
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=75045&vpn=R4%2DB...

8gb of ram is more than enough
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=74758&vpn=PV38G1...

the xfx xxx 750w will provide the power perfectly. its enough for 2 7970s
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=62224&vpn=P1750B...

get 2 of these 7970s

you can probably get a 16GB of ram instead of 8GB since your going 3 monitors
DONT GET AN HDD! GET AN SSD! there are big diffrence between them so dont mix
the 7970 should be able to run anything at a good FPS QUALITY although you can get x2 7970's for a preformance push other than that this build is fine :)
