Is this a good gaming build?

I have started started to planning my new build and I would like to have some tips from you guys :D
I will play on three monitors at 5760x1080.
I will overclock the CPU and maybe the GPU...

  4. I'm grateful , thanks for the help. Any later suggestions will be appreciated :D
  5. Will do, any questions give me a yell ;)
  6. Is there any particular reason why you chose a micro ATX board?
  7. No, I just liked the features of this motherboard. Well and I really don't know the difference between Standard or the Micros , any advices ? Do you recommend another one :??:
  8. The major difference is that standard ATX has more PCIE slots. I'm not sure about other ports that were streamlined. But features-wise, they are basically the same.
