Suggestion on Multi-purpose super nova gaming rigg

Hi,
I am making this supernova for the following purposes:
Hardcore gaming like BF4, Crysis3, cod ghost, nfs, split secon2, hitman4, maxpanye3, quake live, GTA4,bioshock. Watching bluray movies, 3d movies sometime.
Will also add 3d projectors in future. Occasional overclocking, home NAS, photoshop, corel draw, dream waever, autocad.
Please let me know if there are things that I missed. Liquid cooling will also be done later as well. Hdd will be in raid 10. Waiting for the display..read they will come after q2 2014. I will keep the display in portrait form.
Thanks a lot in advanced.

    Yes, multiple suggestions. Quad SLI has VERY little performance over tri-SLI, the only reason is if you're using over 12 monitors (highly unlikely). I will also recommend saving money and buying the i7-4930k with a Corsair H105 (overclocking) for same performance at less cost. Then I will recommend using a Samsung 840 EVO 500GB SSD for OS and main projects (unless you're working on a lot of projects at the same time, 500GB is more than enough) and WD Caviar Black 2TB for the rest of storage. The monitors are not needed, even for ultra resolution gaming and unless you set them up in portrait mode, games look VERY out of proportion and your eye's aren't going to want to look across that much space for projects anyways. I recommend the NZXT Phantom 820 from your selection.

    Thank you so much for the reply. I understand the changes I need wrt proc, hdd, and should go with tri sli.
    However, did not understand the monitor point. WRT to monitor, below is the picture of what I am trying to accomplish.

  3. Oh I see what you mean by monitor setup now. The issue with the PG278Q's are that their border bezel (the plastic rim of the monitor) is really thick so you won't get the effect, as the plastic will show as black lines in your monitor setup. Instead, get a narrow-bezel monitor.

    As I read, RoG Swift PG278Q is the latest yet to launch.. 120 hz, gsync enabled, 1440p, with 6mm bezel, 1ms. The only reason to ignore this monitor could be the bezel.. but 6mm is the least i found. Is there a similar quality monitor with thinner bezel than 6mm?
    I see .. YAMAKASI CATLEAP Q270... but the bezel does not seem smaller than the asus.
  5. You can try this: http://us.aoc.com/monitor_displays/i2757fh but it's slower hertz and no gsync.
  6. I take the HDD suggestion.... thank you again..
