Finding a Sandy Bridge board is proving pretty hard right now.

Although if you are patient you really should wait, the performance from the sandy bridge chips is pretty beastly.

Although if you are really deadset on not going sandy bridge, the suggestions people have made about the build you got going are all pretty good.

I like my single 580, i use it on an Asus 26 inch with max res of 1920x1200, i also run a second 22 inch Acer, the 580 handles both of them quite easily. I will definitely be stepping up to a 590 when the time comes for that, something i really like about EVGA great program.

Hope this helped mate!

They do affect gaming performance but not drastically like 1-5 FPS it's not like before when we had tons of different Chipsets.

Also check this AMD build out, I picked an ATI 6970 the card will play any game at 1920x1080 a GTX 580 is over kill for that resolution. If you ever want to overclock the Mushkin memory set is amazing and matches the Gigabyte board nicely.
