Building gaming/streaming/vid editing pc. 4-5k budget. Help/Thoughts?

I'm building this in a few months and I really want to do my research. Unfortunately this will be my first of build but with the budget should hold me over for a bit. My pc will be used for gaming streaming and some video editing. Important I can support 4 monitors minimum. I'm going to be using x3 Asus VG248QE, and I want to add 1 4k monitor. (Won't be gaming on). Not sure if I'll need x2 titan xs bc of the 4k monitor +3 1080p ones. Don't have a big pref on colors. Though I would like a flashy full tower to fit it all. I will update parts in a list fasion as the post progresses. I would appreciate any and all help with my core components as well as the finished build. Thanks community!

    I was gonna go with the gtx titan z, but the price tag drew me away, and the performance the r9 295x2 is comparable to the titan z

    It has 2 Titan X's and it's still not even $4000 :\

    an r9 295x2 beats the titan x so 2 of the r9 295x2 crossfired will for sure beat the titan x sli, r9 295x2 competes with the titan z not the titan x...


    Look, a single r9 295x2 beats a 780ti in sli



    Still here there is only a single r9 295x2 and beats the titan x, an is slightly beaten by a gtx 980ti sli, so imagine 2 of these beasts! :)

    If you're not going to game on the 4k, you don't need multiple titans. Even integrated graphics can "run" a 4k resolution, a real GPU can do it as well.
    3dmark 11 is pretty old, and the performance test isn't even the hardest one. And the 295s will run pretty hot, and also be dificult to mount those watercoolers, without a custom water cooling setup.

    I'd say spend less.

    I got confused and didn't read read carefully and thought that he will play on a 4k monitor, it turns out he is gaming on 3 1080p monitors, so 2 gtx 980tis will suffice
  7. Thank you very much for the build James Mason. Could I put that in a Cooler Master Storm Stryker (White) ATX Full Tower Case. Though I did want a case with a removable dust filter :/

  12. Thanks :D. I guess it would be too easy if they made 4monitor mounts lol. I want my 4k monitor above my set of 3 in the center. Maybe I can but a 6 mount and remove 2 arms lol. Anywho thanks again James. Your the best
