AMD Build for office 3/4 monitors

Just seeing if this build would work in office with up to 4 monitors, non gaming, just multitasking programs and info across 3 to 4 monitors to have the info we need on screen.

Trying to keep the cost down but solid PC, no need for big storage, we pull off main server for our database work, and just basic programs on multiple monitors, and a couple programs we use are internet base. Its really just a computer with multiple monitors for a bunch of tabs opened up and mircosoft access or word on another screen.

Monitors just basic 1080p 24 - 27" setup

    RM PSU's are not that good, and 750w is way more than you need. The video card only supports up to 3 monitors. FX 8350 is not worth the cost vs the FX 8320. The FX 8320 will match the FX 8350 with just a multiplier bump. I would recommend an aftermarket cooler, as the FX chips get quite hot.

    Personally, I would build this instead. Better performance, and less power/heat.
