OT: 3 gtx 580's is a complete waste if you only play on 1 monitor even at that 3011U res. Two 580's are enough for any games at max settings with AA on with your current monitor.

As for the psu, a good 850w would be more than sufficient if you're NOT going for a 3rd 580, which is unnecessary for single monitor as said above.

As the other post has said, you don't need 2600k and its hyperthreading, games don't use hyperthreading and you might even see some negative effects in games with HT on.

The rest looks good!

btw, if you're going to overclock you need a good cooler and maintenance-free like the H100 which can be had for $130 I know someone is going to attest to this but it's maintenance-free so it's advantageous compared to custom water cooling kits.

Good luck and show us a build log
You can always get an XSPC RASA 750 RS360 for $20 more.

If you plan on going to 3 GTX 580's in the near future, then I would suggest getting a 1200w/1250w PSU.

So i dont need any additional cables/fans? that case i suggested has enough fans and all necessary cables are included with the respective components correct?

I need a 1200w psu for 3 580s? I might cross that bridge when/if it comes to that

1000w is the very-minimum to handle tri-SLI 580 as 850w can handle SLI 580. 1200w recommended.
I recommend Corsair AX Series.

But even SLI 580 is way overkill. Get 3GB cards and SLI them, that's the (overkilly) way to go unless you really want to spend these $3000...

As for the sound card I recommend you Auzentech X-Fi Forte, my dreamcard
Newegg stopped selling Auzentech cards...

As for the hard drive I recommend $80 Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB (rev n°1002FAEX), best 1TB drive since it got platter density bump.

As for the video cards I recommend to get 3GB 580s if you're ready to pay the extra. $539 Zotac or $589(!) eVGA.
What I would do if I were you would be buy one card now and buy another if I feel bottlenecked. But it seems like you want a pri$ey system !

Is there any reason behind the small mechanical hard drive (in comparison to the price you are willing to pay)?

BTW for only $70 more instead of that monitor you can get a 27" iMac, which you can use as en external display. iMacs have 2560x1440 resolution (Which I'll admit is 160px in height less than what you are buying) plus a computer in them. Why you would buy such a large monitor instead of say this or 3x24" monitors + a stand for all of them is beyond me.

lol Or he can just get a cheaper regular monitor.

Honestly buying these overpriced parts is like buying a Rolls. You don't pay for what you buy but for showing you've got money.

3gb versions of gtx580 are overprised,
evga gtx580 3gb is $589.
Better you go with evga gtx580 1.5gb $439/pny gtx580 1.5gb $419
If you plan on getting 3x gtx580 then get antec high current pro1200/corsair ax1200.
From my point of view,tri sli is a waste of money,
best to go with 2x evga gtx580 & corsair hx1050 psu.
