I need some help to finish my gaming pc.

I am wanting to build a PC that can run ARMA 3, CRYSYS 3 or any other game on ULTRA/MAX settings and still run it smoothly.\

1. Will this PC do this?

I also want to be able to connect 3, 30 inch screens to system and mount them vertically for an immersion type gaming set up.

I am also interested in having this pc be able to host a small Arma or Dayz server just for small 20 v 20 player matches and host Mumble voice app for 10-20 members.

My internet is :

150 mbs dl speed
20 mbs upload speed.

What will I need to add to get it to be able to do this?

Below is what I started to build I am extremely happy so far but have no idea what cables, fans, or what pieces should be replaced to save money or improve performance. I also understand i probably am miossing some parts. That is why I am here for help because I am lost.

This will be my 1st ever build. please help me out :)

Ty, man :) 

And this PC will act as a server aswell like I asked in my OP? The AMD build?

I heard SABRETOOTH MOBO was the way to go, why do you suggest different?

I am not really needing or wanting to cut any corners. My budget is higher then build you suggested but I feel your build is not as good as far as some of the pieces you replaced. Can you explain more?

Also I liked original case because of all the VENTS. Why did you decide it needed to be changed?

Haha I went for price performance

The parts you have chosen are better, but cost disproportionately higher

I chose good-enough (which i pretty good already mind you) over the best :p 

The case is one area you can change to suit your needs though the sabertooth is not worth it IMO

Well I guess because I do not know what I am doing. I need help to finish the build I started. I do not know what else I need or what parts like you say are OLD and what I should replace.

I do like the

AMD chip
Vid card &
MOBO

if some one could help me build off that it'd be very very appreciated.

Get this build then
If you feel like you need more ram later on, you can add some
The case should be pretty cool, but you could consider an NZXT Phantom/Phantom 410 or the CM 922 if you're willing to pay more
