Hi guys this is my first time posting here but have been reading forums from this website for a long time and I feel like this is the place to go to answer my questions.
As the title says I am building a new computer and want to make sure everything I have picked out will work together.
the hardware I will be purchasing is as follows.

Hard drives: 1 Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ, 1 SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5

Motherboard: MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA

Processor: Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell 3.5GHz LGA 1150

Graphics Card: ASUS GTX780-DC2OC-3GD5 GeForce GTX 780

Memory: G.SKILL Sniper Gaming Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3

Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 P2 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified 1000W

OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Case: Cooler Master HAF X - High Air Flow Full Tower Computer Case

Drive: ASUS Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-ray Drive

So to recap I believe I added all of the essential hardware needed. I just want to make sure everything will fit and work together. I also have a couple of side questions about the performance of the computer if they could be answered. I intend on running 2 24in monitors and 1 32 inch tv off of this set up. Will there be any problems with this? Is the graphics card going to be able to handle running high end games like crysis 3, BF4, Witcher on the 2 24in monitors or will it reduce my frame rate to low? comment on last question I will be only playing one of the games at a time. I just want it to be able to stretch across both of my monitors.

Thank you guys in advance I'm sure I will have more questions but this will cover a lot of my main concerns.

Well first ill comment on the build, its a very overkillish build in 2 aspects, are u going to get SLI later? coz if u arent 1000w of PSU is a lot more juice than u need, but if u wanna keep it sure
The build overall is very good, 32gb of ram is a LOT for gaming, i have 8gb of ram and i can run BF4 on ultra, but since u are getting double monitors i guess that makes sense, even if it is a bit overkill
GOod case and all the build
with your first question no u wont have any problem, the gtx 780 can run games at 1440p and 2000+p with no problems, even if your screens are 1440p it should be fine with dealing with them.
Have u considered getting windows 8.1? just a thought, with OS's is really about personal preference

Get the 4670k.. the i7 is a waste of money. Same as for 32GB of ram. 8GB is plenty. No need for more.

I actually will be running sli with 2 gtx 780's which is why i decided to go with the 1000w Power supply and the reason i decided to go with the i7 and 32gb of ram is because outside of gaming I do alot of video editing and altering with sony vegas pro and adobe after effects. So outside of the overkill on the ram and the power supply everything matches up well? Also to the windows 8.1 I can honestly say I've never used it. I dont really like the tablet style look of it but I've herd it has a normal desktop appearance like windows 7 or am I wrong on that.

well than if u do a lot of stuff with sony vegas and adobe u should keep that processor and that ram, it will serve you good, the i7 has hyper threading and wayyy more power
Again the GTX 780 does 2 monitors fine, but if u are getting SLI on it then its further the reason not to worry about it, it will be fine
Yes everything matches fine
Well i have had windows 7 and windows 8.1 i can tell u that about the tablet- feeling i got it in the beginning but i got used to it and its just like another OS, its functional and the shortcuts are cool when u start to get used to it, some people dont get used to it though, thats why OS's are personal,

Awesome thanks for the feed back. I think I will look a little more into Windows 8.1 and weigh up the options a bit more.
