Default I'm building my first computer...

Alright so I'm a big gamer, console and PC, and I have decided to build a really good gaming computer to be my powerhouse command station. I would just like some advice. SO far I have my case, Power supply, and sound card. A necessity for me is to be able to use all of my monitors, I have a current build of 6 monitors at my disposal. I know it's possible to use them all, but i need to know exactly what I will need. I have an Olevia TV to be my main monitor and 5 dell computer monitors, 3 on top of the tv, two on the side. Here is what I have come up with on my own just looking around, please help me out. I know I may need more or different items, just need help. Thanks.

HAVE:
Case- Thermaltake Level 10 GT
Power Supply- Raidmax Hybrid
Sound Card- Rocketfish 7.1

NEED:
Motherboard- ASUS Sabertooth
CPU- AMD Phenom
Ram- G. Skill Ripjaws
Video Card- ASUS EAH6850

**This will be for games Like SW:TOR, Skyrim, Guild Wars 2, Team Fortress 2, and others.

The AMD Phenoms might be hard to come by now.

Being an AMD fanboy, it pains me to say that you'll get better performance with a Core i5.
