Grab two more monitors and go Nvidia Surround. That is all.

I honestly think you should go with a single 6990, or gtx 590...add another one later...pocket some of the money and put it towards a revo drive..or a larger ssd..there is speculation that the 6990 will drop in price within the next few days..but dont take my word for it..

Dual-GPU cards are not a good idea. Less performance than single-card Crossfire or SLI. Also, the 6990 suffers from the annoying microstutter problem that has plagued ATI.

Almost the same as yours? He's going SLI and has a better CPU for starters...

I've heard they were good, but I ended up getting the EVGA for two reasons:

1: Warranty is great
2: Apparently (according to Newegg reviews) the Frozr heats up a LOT in SLI.

You can go dual x16 with the Maximus IV Extreme. You just have to occupy slot 1 with something that isn't a graphics card. And then you can occupy other slots with the 580's and it will x16 with the NF200 chipset. But at the same time... there are some reviews/benchmarks in which SLI in the x8 mode outperformed the x16 slots(nf200).

Revised final build in the OP, please look at that before rating/suggesting.
