Ultra Gaming PC - looking for advice/critique on my build

Approximate Purchase Date: within the next 30 days
Budget Range: ~$2500

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Internet, Movies
Primary Concerns:
1) I’d like to play any game on ultra for the next 3 years
2) I place a high priority on low temps and high stability (willing to sacrifice quiet for cool)
3) I don’t want to oc in the short term, but I want the option to if it becomes necessary in the long term
4) I’d rather overbuy (within reason) than want more out of my system later on

I’ll be using 2x BenQ XL2420TE 1920x1080
Do you need to buy OS: No
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg / fry’s electronics
Location: Indiana , US
Parts Preferences: open to any brand assuming its a quality part
Overclocking: Maybe (long term)
SLI or Crossfire: Yes
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Boredom. Actually I upgrade every 3 years or so and its about that time. My current PC is fine for most things, but todays games are just a little too much for it.
Here is what I’m thinking:

  1. Pretty sick build :D

    I'm sure this build will be able to play games at max for the next 3 years although I could be wrong, Since games are going to next gen. System requirements are going to change alot.

    I remember when the current gen first came out and my £2000 pc could not run games in ultra which were 2007 titles, so I would expect the same thing but I could be wrong...
