you might find rebates on some of those iteams and i recomend at least a bigger monitor for gaming like a 20.1 to get 1680*1050 or 1600*1200 as those are the gaming resolutions and your crossfire will support at any resolution

I believe that the Master card is a 1900xt, not a 1900xtx, so you might as well drop the other card down to a 1900xt. You can only run at the speed of the slowest card, so those 2 should OC about the same. It saves you a few bucks and you shouldn't be losing any performance. With that said, it might be worth ordering the master card first and see what ram ICs come with it. If it comes with the faster ram, then the 1900xtx wouldn't be a bad idea.

I've heard bad things about the Asus vento, I'd reccomend getting the Thermaltake Xaser Armor.

Also, instead of an FX-60, I'd reccomend the Opteron 180. It's $300 less, and you can VERY easily OC the extra 200MHz to get it up to FX60 speeds. That would give you the wiggle room in your budget to spring for watercooling.

And, finally, I'd reccomend that instead of that $320 Corsair RAM you've got listed, you pick up some G.Skill Extreme DDR500 Ram. It's like $195 at NewEgg.
