Also, make sure you realize that you will barely be able to fold with the ATi solution. That, and the GTX 580s have more overclocking headroom. They're just insanely over-priced.
On the other side, 2GB of RAM is great for resolutions above 4MP.
Everything he said.

The best bang for the buck right now is the 6950 unlocked to a 6970. I dont know why you would need 2 or 3 of them let alone multiple 580s atm. unless you are doing big multiple monitor setups like eyefinity one will tear up any game at 1920x1080 or 1920x1200

Any game except for Crysis.

My goal was always to run Crysis maxed at 2560x1600 w/4AA and get 45fps MIN.

Keep the GTXs. You can edit video using CUDA.

-Get the P67 UD5 or some other board unless you need 3x PCIe x16 slots.

Oh dear, I am so sorry, but you've made some crucial errors.

Motherboard: I wouldn't get the Gigabyte boards for lack of UEFI.
RAM: Personally, the 2000/CL9 kit for 50$ more sounds better to me.
PSU: Oh what a waste! You can have the superior Silverstone Single-Rail 1000w for 150$!
HDD: You could get 3TB for the same price. And 1TB drives are insanely un-futureproof.
ODD: The lite-on is both useless (since burning BDs is way too expensive) and not as good quality as the LG. The LGs are beautiful.

I understand your need to feel autonomous, but I hope you won't regret these purchases.

mobo: they will support uefi as the chips are big enough too. Ask sin he said they will.
psu: yea its overkill but now he will never have to worry about power for some upgrades as well
hdd: raid....?
odd: whatever works in this category as burning drives are a dime a dozen at this point. I wont comment on the blu ray as I think its a waste still

op: youll be happy with what you got.
