However sadly enough you won't be able to run minecraft on 50fps with 3 monitors but you will however be able to run it at 9999fps.... Minecraft has literally so low graphics even the shittiest graphics card can run the game at high fps.

The ram costs 2x more than mine but doesn't perform better at all..... And if you're going to to have multiple monitors then having 4gb gddr5 memory than 3gb will be alot better so that's why I wouldn't choose the radeon one.. Also my build costs same but not only out performs yours but has less spends less unnecessary money on stuff like for example why got with the 8 core one when the 6 core one when they performs almost as good. I would cut down on the CPU, Motherboard and the PSU and spend the rest on the graphics and the monitor. You won't notice any performance difference btw the FX-8350 and the FX-6300 when it comes to gaming since the GPU will do 75% of the work. But it's up to him to decide which build he wants..

Then just get 2x8 RAM.... For editing rendering takes LOOONG time so i would get more RAM over a better CPU and since you're running multiple monitor plus SLI setup games will take up more RAM but usually 8gb should be enough for any game with one high resolution monitor but 3 might be more difficult. So yea get 16gb RAM and 4gb graphics card.
