well first of all for this setup i suggest a 1000 or 1200 watt psu because you are using dual graphic cards
may be PC Power & Cooling T12W 1200W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply - Retail
for the mother board get ASUS Rampage II Extreme LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail (it contain a x-fi sound card from creative so don't get the sound card you listed)
and the 21.5 inch monitor won't be good for your graphic card so get minimum a 26 or 28 inch
and i suggest you get thermaltake V1 Max-Performance CPU Cooler with Massive 110mm Blue LED Full-Range Variable Speed Fan Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition & Core i7 Ready LGA 1366 CL-P0401 - Retail
if you are going to overclock or if you want your pc to run cool
and make sure that the HDD cache is 32 mb not 16 to get faster boot and enjoy

WOW it exchange into finding straight forward till you sed $4 hundred you wont get any Quad center workstation's that way, not sturdy adequate for gaming besides, a low priced quad center processor itself is £a hundred and then a mom board is around £60 so thats just about all your funds long gone and u havent even have been given a case, followers, capability supply, photos card, RAM. im sorry to declare yet you will never get a quad center for that value till you elect a quad center processor mom board and not something with it :) i advise you shop up you elect atleast 1gb photos card 2gb ram and 400w capability supply and maximum needed of all, A case :) wish this rather help, if i the place u i could start up saving as much as perhaps around $6-seven hundred funds :) Case - £40 Ram - £50 photos card £sixty 5 - ATI HD 4600 1GB £20 - 400w capability supply £a hundred and fifteen - AMD phenom quad center processor £alot - opperating equipment tricky tension - £varies alot wish this facilitates for a value handbook :)

I suggest you go with this PSU:
Minimum PSU for a system running that 4870X2 is 650watts so this gives you a safety buffer. Has 4 6+2 connectors so your coneectors are covered. Also has one big 60amp +12V rail so you won't have to deal with splitting rails to power the rig.
I would trash the ram and board and go with this board/ram combo:
I sure wouldn't spring for a spendy sound card then go cheap on the ram and only run 2 channels instead of 3.

I would go with a p6t board instead. And on newegg they sell 6gb ram cards in bundle already so you should look into that. If you are planning to make a long lasting one should probably include a blue ray drive. or else everything seems good to me. I would go GTX well that's my opinion but i like Radeon cards too ;D definitely go with 800 because you dont know if you might go crossfire? but if you were to go crossfire 1k psu is the key. If you clockin probably water cooling? Wat case are you using? maybe extreme fans to cool the extreme cpu down if you oc'ing

As mentioned before, I think the only part of your system that I would review is the mainboard - there are better choices that MSI.
