I put together this build last night, but if you guys could suggest better value parts to lower the costs some please do so. I'll be using this computer for gaming, web design/development work, trading in the markets, poker, watching movies, surfing the internet, etc.

Change CPU to i5 4670k, lower amount of RAM to 2x4GB (8GB in total) and switch the power supply to a 650W one from XFX, seasonic or something like that.

Do not expect to be running Nvidia surround on the GTX 770 (one game on 3 screens simultaneously).

Here, I would stick to the 4770k as it's much more powerful, and in the future games will start using more threads, the 4670k only hold 4 whereas the 4700k hold 8, at this point in time 4 threads are used but as games and components progress more threads will be used.

You can revert the case, I was just trying to cut money, case is up to you, I would go fir air cooling as it is adequate and cheaper although if you want liquid it's up to you, depends if you're going for performance to price.
+ You could add a SSD as well, for this I just left it with the HDD to save money.

What would I need to add to be able to run games on all 3 monitors then? I do think I want to keep the 16GB of ram though. To help with my web work, when I do animations and such.

My friend swayed me to go water cooler as I wanted to try to do an OC for the first time with this build. I have to go crash as I was up all night researching this build and I have an exam later, but I'll check back with this thread after my exam this evening. Thanks so far!

For 3 monitor gaming, I recommend a GPU with more VRAM or SLI 770s or a 780ti

780Ti if you want to go with a single card (which would save you money since you wouldn't have to get a better PSU).

Nice alterations. I have to run and take this pol sci exam, I'll give it a real look over once I return, thanks though!
