Gaming, Video Production and Game Development Rig - Help with Part Selection and Spatial Awareness

So I need some very general help on this build. It's my first one and I'm being a little ambitious.

The goal of the Build is to be a gaming, video production, and game development rig. This, of course, requires 16gb of ram, storage, etc. This rig will be used by both myself and two student organizations (competitive gaming and game development) that I advise (so I may be moving it around if that matters). They want to start live streaming/commentating their games.

Things I'm not sure about include:

- Spatial Awareness in the 600T (or should I even get the mid?)
- Cooling Practice (trying to stay away from liquid but if it needs to happen I can)
- Additional Parts (EX. 2xGTX 780s?)
- Correct Parts?
- Anything else you can think of by way of peripherals and the like.

I've included a parts picker list below. I greatly appreciate any assistance provided in trying to get this beast together.
