honestly if money is no object. go for this
AMD phenom 965 125w black edition 3.4ghz
1TB hd your choice of brand.
corsair H50 CPU cooler.
8gb Corsair RAM 1600mhz
Asus M4a89GTD pro/usb3 motherboard.
Corsair HX1000w power supply
HAF 932 case
2 HD5970 graphics cards. quad crossfirex
3 Hanns-g 28" HD lcd monitors
logitech g19 keyboard with g13 gaming pad
your lookin at about 3800 with all the stuff i listed.
but honestly you can build a rig that will play ANY game for around 1500
I hope you are kidding.
The rig I listed will max most games, there really is not any point in getting more power than that for most people. Also, you need a displayport->DVI converter to run three monitors, and a BD-RW drive is pointless right now. That mobo will bottleneck quad CF 5970s too. 890GX is only x8/x8, and that absolutely requires x16/x16 or else you will lose about 10% of your performnace, possibly more. 790FX is the only real option.
3 28" hanns g monitors is pure epicness though. That is my current setup.
