i2500k, 6950 2gb (partial to sapphire), 8gb 1600 ram, haf 922 or 932 case, noctua d14 cooler, z68 chipset mobo, 650w psu, monitor of your choice.

FWIW, you don't need more than 1 69502gb. I don't know why anyone would recommend anymore than that. Some people are recommending 4 gpu's...why? I have BFBC2 maxed on everything and getting 60+ FPS on just my one card...

Unless you are creating CAD models of high rises, not sure why you would ever need 4 gpus...

I was thinking it is a bad idea because he is recommending (4) gpu's...

Go with Heat suggestion.
Maybe look into getting MSI GeForce 560 Ti its lower temps and noise while being a bit less expensive but we are only talking about 25 bucks but to me nvidia is the better performer.
You don't need the 2GB GDDR5 from 6950 as well.

and start out with one perhaps and see how it treats you and than upgrade to another perhaps on a later date.

Why not get 2500k + GTX 570...?

OP, I really suggest you do some research before you purchase your parts. It will help immensely [in your decision].

Heat is suggesting the Intel Core i5 2500k so yeah....

570 is that more expensive while the 560 Ti is the better price per performance ratio that is why.
Also they are cheaper than a single 580 even when you SLI 560 Ti and performance better than the single 580

The 560 Ti will be more than capable of running BF3.

As much as I absolutely HATE super combo's....that one's not bad. The motherboard is "meh" (I'm not a fan of the Z68 boards personally, features I don't need), the SSD is also "meh", as there's tons of bad reviews. The cooler you picked is also "meh". Otherwise its a solid build, and would allow him to SLI that 570 easily with everything included.

Only thing its really missing is custom sleeved cable extensions, RAID0 for games, and a GOOD cooler. I'm sure the board and SSD are fine, just not what I would personally pick.

Thuban will bottleneck the crap out of 4 GPUs.
