What's wrong with an $400 CPU?

Right now, the Q6600 is an excellent choice. Just make sure you get the G0 revision. (SLACR). Also, after its pricedrop, the Q6700 is in your price range. You might like the higher multplier.

Unfortunately, the Q9450 and the Xeon X3350 are hard to find... at $350, they're in your price range, and a good chip!

So you want a CPU under $400 to go with 8GB of RAM, two huge monitors, two 9800 GX2's...

Q9450 or 6700.

Or, again, the Q6700. After the price drop, this chip is very attractive (used to be double the price of the Q6600).
