I was thinking to build a gaming rig by end of february. So i had some questions
No.1: Is a 24 inch 144hz monitor better than 3 1080p 60Hz multimonitor setup?

No.2: Should I get the 780ti as my vga card or wait for dual gk110 cards (gtx 790 and titan black edition )
Thats all. Here are the specs:-

Intel Core i7-4930K socket 2011 needs 4 sticks ram to utilize quad channel
so you can get either 4x 4gb or 4x 8GB of ram

You could get a i7-4770 and not be able to tell a difference in performance for games. No game currently on the market has the ability to fully utilize the full capabilities of a 4770. And you would save a couple of hundred dollars. A 780Ti should be able to play any game at Max settings without any problems. But if you wait for the Titan Black or the 790 the prices of the other stuff MIGHT come down a little. Having such a powerful system and only doing 1080p is kinda dumb if you are only going to go with 1 monitor. If you do only go with one monitor kick it up to a 27" with a 2560x1440 resolution. You'll get a better gaming experience and that system would still be more then enough. If you are gunna go with 3 monitors I would suggest three 24" @1080 if you are going to stick to a single GPU setup. You also don't need monitors that go over 60hz, if you do then just go with 120hz. There isn't really a noticeable deference in the image quality from 120-144hz.

Yeah, you are right. Because after buying a 780ti , if I will still play on a 1080p monitor then it will sound dumb. So what should i get a 27" 1440p Monitor or should i give a go to a Three monitor setup ? Please recommend me the hardware too. here are the rest of the specs:-

You can choose which monitor you like.

My thoughts:
A single high-res panel is probably the best for video editing. It's also good if you don't like bezels.
3 IPS monitors will be extremely immersive for gaming. They have very good picture quality.
3 120Hz monitors are good for FPS gaming, but I wouldn't recommend it unless you are sure that's what you want.

Once you decide the monitors, the rest of the build can be designed.

Is it possible to use a single 1440p monitor in the middle and then place 1 1080p monitor on each side and use all the three? If is it possible then recommend me the monitors too.

Yes, that is what I have. 1080p 1440p 1080p all 3 monitors are 27". When I want to play a game with all 3 then I just turn the center resolution down. When I only need one screen I turn in back up.

I just noticed something else. It may not matter but if you have that kind of budget, get a Blu-Ray burner. That way you can still watch all the movies and things you want, but can also burn stuff too. Also I would get 4x4Gb sticks of Ram Instead of only 2, that way you get the benefit of the full bandwidth capabilities of the RAM slots instead of just half. The monitors you choose should have small bezels, be all the same size, and all be ISP's. Below I have 3 monitors from that part picker site. 1 @1440p & 2 @1080p. All 3 are from Asus. if your gunna get 3 monitors they might as well all be the same brand.

2x @1080p:http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-monitor-ve278h
