Going for a new build, Good choice?

Will this work well and is it all compatible?

Im probably going to overclock CPU mildly and gpu heavily

3x 1080p 24 inch monitors in surround
EVGA GTX 780ti Superclocked (Air cooled)
Asrcok Extreme9 X79 Motherboard
Core i7 4820k
128 GB SSD
2 TB HDD
Corsair CX 750w semi-Modular PSU
Corsair h105 Liquid cooler
Corsair SP120 quit edition fans for case and h105
Thermaltake A31 Case
Crucial Ballistix Tactical 4x 4GB RAM (1600 Mhz)

Trying to run the latest titles at 3x 1080p with ultra settings and max AA
with 60+ FPS
if the 780ti cant do that then i shall get two

Good build? and suggestions?
Also its alot of money so would like to know if these parts are compatible...

Thanks

More about build good choice
  1. 780ti should b able to do that ;)
  2. Work well? Its a beast!!! All good apart from I would recommend a better PSU like a Corsair AX860i and a better motherboard like Asus Sabertooth X79 as AsRock is a bit iffy
  3. I think X79 is more video editing oriented as well as more expensive. Why have you chosen LGA2011 over LGA1150?
    You'll need more than 750W for 2 x 780Tis. 650W should be OK for one. See: http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp
    And most people are looking at 1866 RAM these days - virtually same price as 1600.

    Any other motherboards you would recommend? i dont really like the colours used on the sabertooth, they look like a browny greeny :/

    Im going for a black case with black components, then getting blue LEDs around the window, so its a black and blue theme
    Thats why I looked at the asrock (black and silver)

    what about:
    Gigabyte GA-X79-UD3
    MSI X79A-GD45 Plus

    Ive looked at the asrock motherboard and it has everythnig I wanted, including colour theme :/
    What exacly is iffy about these motherboards?

    Yes I've had a look around and the CX PSU's arent the best, think im going to go get the RM1000
    Forgot about the power for the second GPU if i was gonna get one
  5. I've got an ASRock X79 Extreme 3. No problems at all. If I was going to buy a new Mobo I'd get an Extreme 6 now.
  6. Best answer

    First, out of the two motherboards you have suggested, I would pick the Gigabyte
    Secondly, even though the new AsRock motherboards are all right, they have the highest return rate because of failure. Just a thought
