First of all I would like to apologize for I do not know if im on the right section.

I've saving up for almost 6 months to have my dream rig.
Right now, I have a case: Corsair 800D
a powersupply: 1000w Kingwin 80%+ Bronze Efficient
I got these two on sale. I got them for 250 bucks.
So I need help to finish this build. Right now I'm aiming for air cooling
but I have some specs that I want to get:
GTX 590 / Ati 6990
3 24" Monitors( Doesnt matter if LCD/LED)
Intel Core I7 990x (For sure I will get this one)
not sure about the motherboard.
so basically thats it, My budget would be $3000 including tax in canadian dollars
I need your suggestions and advice to make this rig at its best with that limitation in budget.

Well, let's suppose you were going for a red and black theme color wise. Here are some great parts for your build.

The parts your definitly getting or have
Power supply and case- $250

cpu- I7 990x $1,099.98

here's the parts you haven;t yet chosen

Motherboard- EVGA X58 Classified 3 EATX LGA1366 $400.88
http://ncix.com/products/?sku=55797&vpn=141-GT-E770-A1&manufacture=eVGA

RAM- Corsair Dominator GT 12GB 3x4gb $300
http://ncix.com/products/?sku=52470&vpn=CMT12GX3M6A1866C9&manufacture=Corsair

I still think you have to get two Nvidia graphics cards to do their equivalent of eyefinity(i'm not certain) so you could go with a HD6990, unless you'd prefer the GTX590
Graphics card- HD 6990 $749.99
http://ncix.com/products/?sku=59513&vpn=HD699AENF9&manufacture=XFX

Since you're getting an i7 990x, you're going to need something good to cool it.
Either of these would be good for the job since you don;t want a custom watercooling system.
CPU Cooler- Corsair H70 $99.99
http://ncix.com/products/?sku=54728&vpn=CWCH70&manufacture=Corsair
or
Noctua NH-D14 $89.99
http://ncix.com/products/?sku=47090&vpn=NH-D14&manufacture=Noctua

Hard drives- Caviar Black 1Tb HDD SATA 3 6.0gb/s $93.98
http://ncix.com/products/?sku=50895&vpn=WD1002FAEX&manufacture=Western%20Digital%20WD

or an SSD of your choosing

All together this comes out to about $2997.94 CAD

My Rig|CPU- i7 950@3.08ghz|CPU Cooler- Coolermaster v8|Motherboard- EVGA X58 SLI3|RAM- G.skill Trident 6gb 2000mhz|GPU- XFX HD5870|Case- HAF 932 Black Edition|PSU- Coolermaster Silent Pro 1000W

if you can wait till summer you might be able to buy intels next gen Enthusiast system powerd by SB (core i7 dunno rest) 8 core 16T or an AMD buldozer FX(maybe the fx power times are back) cpu. it will defenetly be better than the i7 990X. and if you have time to wait than wait thil the die shrink for the gpus to 28 nm because it will increase the performance/ watt significant and will make it faster. it might have pcie 3 suport.

Not to be a nit-picker, but shouldn't this be in Hardware?

I think that you should spend more on the motherboard...use the gigabyte G1.Assasin it's the best for use a 990x.... Then choose Amd 6990... I don't know how much it will be but the MoBo is the most important component...;) good luck
