Beast... I'd stay with the 3870's if it were me. Why not a Phen. 9850? Is there a 9550 BE (Unlocked multi)

No 9550 BE but the 9850 is like ehh $30 more so maybe.. but IDk
I figure this should run COD4 or Crysis well at 1680x1050

That looks good. Only thing is, may I suggest the DFI board.its cheaper and it should overclock better.

I would wait it out for the new 4850. That is supposed to be bette than the 8800gt, so i say wait it out if u can.

You will run into a bottleneck with the phenom and the crossfired 3870s. Just overclock as much as you can and that will help. Still is a very beastly rig, you'll have fun with it for sure.

not sure what heatsink you planto use but due to those heatsinks sinks on the memory being so big clearance might be a problem
