Looking to build a high end workstation running many vms. Will be used as a development machine hooked up to duel 24" monitors and also a 46" lcd as a third monitor. So far I my list includes the following:

Mobo - SUPERMICRO MBD-X9DR3-F-O Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600

CPU - 2 Intel E5-2620

PSU - OCZ ZX Series 1250W Fully Modular

Storage - 128 SSD with 4 1TB internal HDD

Video Card - FirePro 2460

RAM - 4 x 32G (4x8GB) GSKILL Z Series for 128 GB total

Case - Not really sure what would fit everything. I am looking at Corsair 800D but wasn't sure it would fit. I have also seen recommendations for LIAN LI PC-V2120B

And other various components such as a card reader, blue ray burner, etc.

Basically the question I have is there any of the above mentioned components that seems to be way off base and any help on the case would be appriecated.

The LIAN is a sweet case and should do right by you.

i did take a look at that one, but wasn't sure i could fit two of those on the dual socket mobo. how can I tell that they won't be in the way of each other?

I don't really know. I do know that:

I have that same case and love it, in fact I have 2. They work great and the only thing I could say needs to be a bit better is how sturdy the case is.
