I don't know about things working together well so does the motherboard work well with the cpu cooler and such. i also do not know if liquid cooling would be needed or not. and if the Titan Black GPU would be better then say 3 lesser 2GB cards in Sli.
I would like multiple monitors but the cost for them would put me over budget. also would having the sli configuration be better for multiple monitors?

I will be able to expand over time as well so for now maybe 1 graphics card and 1 monitor later get more, if that is the best way to go.

Thanks a tun guys for all the help in advance.

Although liquid cooling is not needed, I would suggest atleast going with an AIO liquid cooler with this priced build. Also drop the Titan Black and the sound card. GPU go with the 780ti with custom cooler from someone like Asus or MSI. Use the extra money for a good AIO and a much better case. Spending this much on a build, I would atleast go with a decent case like a Corsair 750D or the Corsair Air 540. The i7 also isnt necessary. Btw wait for devil's canyon and z97. No point in building such a high end pc without waiting a little for new parts. They should be coming out very very very soon.

I have been looking at projectors for an alternative to the 3 monitors. i don't like the black lines you get from edges, and i can use it as a home theater as well. i found a projector that looks like it will fit the bill. BenQ W1070 Projector:http://www.projectorpeople.com/projectors/projdtls.asp?...

my questions would be, will it look as good with 3d. and will nividia 3D vision 2 work with projectors?

No, the projector you selected is not 3D ready and will not work with Nvidia 3D vision. Also, there will be a lot of input lag if you use a projector. I suggest you stick with a good monitor. Projectors just aren't functional for gaming.
