You need better monitor resolution and better speakers.
Thermaltake Water 2.0 EXTREME for some extreme performance. Also matches your EXTREME edition cpu.
Why even bother with HDD? SSDs are the way to go in this build.

Don't forget to buy diamonds and add some bling into this build.

Answers:
Jerador, Agreed with the OS. I'll make sure to switch it.

Chaos, I agree with you on all counts except your monitor choice. I don't really need a 1440p res if it costs me a 5ms response and 120Hz refresh. I'll probably switch to a 27 inch monitor though. I found one that's 120Hz 5ms 1080p and 27 inch which is very nice.

Noob12, I don't want a dual cpu setup and I can't find any more RAM than 64gb (8x8gb). I'll probably be sticking with my current mobo since it is one of the few that offers an lga 2011 socket and 8 ram slots. Also, I'll probably stick with my i7 extreme. Plus, I found a monitor that better suits my preferences (120Hz, 5ms, 27 inch) I will however, take your idea of a 6 monitor setup.

So here is my revised build:

Let me know what you think now.
