Is this computer build good enough?

The computer i am building is going to be playing games and using 3D modeling software (solidworks).If you have a reason that i should change my options please explain. I feel like ive got this build down i just wanna run it by fellow enthusiast.

Big questions:
-i have been told i might want to invest in one more video card but from the specs i was looking off of on Nvidia's website i think ill be able to run the triple monitor setup(i know its 27in and 3D yes im crazy). Prove these other people wrong or sway me to buy the extra one.

-i cant choose between the 2nd gen Intel Core i7-3930K Sandy Bridge-E or the one i have picked out (down below) which do you guys will do. i know the 4th gen is faster but it only has 4 cores while the 2nd gen has 6 cores. i know ill have to change the motherboard and maybe the RAM if you guys think i should get the 2nd gen intel. itll be the rampage IV extreme if thats the case and then ill just find some G. Skills that fit that board

-last question will the power be sufficient

More about computer build good
  1. The 3930K is the superior CPU for your 3d modelling. The power supply is more than sufficient and a 600watt PSU will run a system with a single GTX780 and a 850watt unit a system with 2 of them. http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm

    ok thanks for the power info i was lost on that. But on the 3930K processor would the 4th gen processor be a lot different or would the difference be small? like is the 4770K Haswell a good processor too? And you didnt really mention it but do you know if the 1 GTX 780 is good enough for that triple screen setup for gaming?

    Both CPU's are in here http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/core-i7-4960x-ivy-bridge-e-benchmark,3557.html
    On the GTX780 one is most likely acceptable but if you want highest in game settings then you would need the second card
