It's going to be reasonably difficult to build a computer possible to run games at 5760x1080 (assuming that's what you mean by 3 1080p monitors). I might be wrong though, maybe you can squeeze in a couple of 7870s or something.

You could get an FX-6300 and a 970 or 960 motherboard for a bit better performance/dollar, as well as getting the 7870XT would be a nice addition, this combined could really benefit your build as a whole.

Anyways everything else on this list is fine, though a z77 motherboard for an i3 is a bit of a silly idea as you will never use it, H77 or B75 would do just fine. As well as the Cooler, since you can't overclock why get one?
