Default First Time Builder... Don't think I'm doin' it right.

So I'm trying to build a high/mid powered computer I won't need to upgrade for a while. I play games like WoW and I'm really looking to expand to some of those really high-end games like Crysis and all that.

This is what I have so far (Realize I'm missing a lot.)
Motherboard: Newegg.com - ASUS Crosshair IV Formula AM3 AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Graphics Card: No idea which one to pick but I want to link all three
Processor: Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT90ZFBGRBOX
Ram: Newegg.com - CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1333C7 G (Based on timings)

And that's really all I have. I still need a cooler (Because 1090T apparently heats up like the sun), case (No idea which one to pick but if it looks cool and will like accommodate my motherboard I'd be fine with it), probably a lot more I'm not even thinking about like the network adapter.

Long story short I really need help building this computer because I have NO. IDEA. WHAT. I'M. DOING.

And is there anything wrong with the parts I've already picked? I'm really looking to minimize the price but not completely kill performance. I want to be able to run Crysis (Or a very CPU dependent game like it) on like UltimateOmegaOmg mode and be cruising the internet comfortably, or have Pandora playing.

Budget's not a question right now, I just need help and I want to know what ballpark I'm aiming for.

Chassis:
HAF 932 AMD Limited Edition - Cooler Master

Right now I'm really stuck on Cooling, if my parts are right, three good-for-the-money-spent graphics cards, operating system and I'm not sure what else I'm missing.

your missing the power supply which this build id say go with a 850watt atleast. your good on the motherboard the ram, cpu. and for the graphics card go with an ati try a "radion hd 5800 or grater" and look for the greatest cfm on a cpu cooler that will show you if it can cool your cpu good enough. oh remember to get thermal grease. the parts you need are. hard drive, dvd burner, power supply, graphics card(ati), and for this build windows 7 64bit.

SLi is not really necessary. (not with that card anyway) Your not going to notice much of a difference once above 60FPS.
others will argue this point. but I'm running a GTX460 1gb and getting 60FPS on all games I play on max settings.
