New System Build Around Geforce 780 TI and 4 monitors total, please suggest!

Hey guys I got a lot of help so far from darksable, giantbucket, and some other guys and decided against a 6 monitor setup for now, going for 4. I can always sli 2 cards later and work on 6.

I put 2 gtx 780 ti's below just because I might get a second one day to run 6 and get some better gaming performance, but for now just buying the 1. Trying to make sure I'm futureproofing my power supply. The system runs at 722 watts estimated so I think I'm ok, thoughts? I have 850w

I think I could do better on the ram and the wimpy hard drive maybe I'll take that up to 2 TB.

Is that a good brand of video card to get or should I look elsewhere? I don't like noise or excess heat.

I haven't got any comments about my intel chip, think I could do better for the money? Thanks for looking and comments!
