No its not very good at all. If you are serious, which im guessing you arent, if you spend $12k on a PC, youll want to be gaming on something better than lowly 1080p. Even if it is across 3 monitors. Stop wasting peoples time.

Obvisuly I didnt waste your time becuase you bothered posting. What three screens do you suggest, mister thinks that if someone has money then they act ugly to people. I just wanted an honest opinion.

If you are serious, pay someone to design and build a PC for you. That build up there is all kinds of stupid money spent. Im not sure what, "mister thinks that if someone has money then they act ugly to people." means, maybe you can explain that to me. You wanted an honest opinion, I gave you mine. That build is terrible for the money you may spend.

Why are there so many pointless usb devices like several media card readers/hubs. You can spend 10k easily before even going past storage space if you look at enterprise pcie storage in raid etc. - that would be money well spent for one thing. I agree with Vrumor- just pay someone to make you one.

1) Can save $700 by dropping the CPU down to an i7-4770K, or even $100 more by going with the i5-4670K. The i5-4670K is the best gaming CPU for the money, and offers the same or close enough frame rates that no hardware site recommends the i7-4960X over the i5-4670K for strictly gaming purposes.
2) 16GB is more then enough RAM unless you do a lot of 3D Rendering all day, or run multiple virtual machines.
3) All that money, and not even a single SSD for Windows? A SSD is a must for any new system. Even on a lowly office system, the difference is night and day over mechanical drives.
4) All the add-on network cards are pointless. The ethernet card built into the motherboard is all you need. Also, if this is truly a gaming system, LAN is always better then wifi. Even in normal browser, LAN is much more stable and faster overall then wifi. Plus, you added two wifi cards. Stick to the LAN port on the motherboard.
5) As cozmium pointed out, way too much pointless or useless USB based stuff. You don't need a docking station for a desktop for a docking station converts a laptop into a desktop, and you'll NEVER need a USB DVD drive for a proper desktop (New internal drives are only $20). Again, most of the USB stuff is more for laptops, and not desktops.
6) All that money, and only 1080p screens? I would at least get triple 2560X1440 monitors if I had unlimited funds like that.

I agree with vrumor as well. Have someone who knows hardware to at least design it for you. $2000 will build a great system these days.

I think it was the way you worded your question. Normally only time wasters would list the best PC components money could buy for $12k and ask if they were any good. Obviously you didn't make your fortune by being able to communicate with people or having any sense, so I'm guessing lottery win or drugs.

really at this point find a expensive prebuild pc to buy, or hire a guy from a pc boutique. Otherwise there is to much stupid for a forum member to be bothered siting through.
