The above computer is the one I am ready to buy, but I just wanted to make sure all of the parts are compatible together.

I was using a website called gooeypc to check the compatibility of the parts, and everything didn't seem to fit together. Something about the Monitors not being connected because of lack of cords/inputs? And other various problems like the PSU not being supported by the case, so on, so forth. The website is in a beta stage, so I don't know if it is reliable, I figured a bunch of redditors were a better source.

I plan to do many performance pushing things with this computer including 3D Rendering, Modeling, Video Rendering and Editing, 3D Game Programming, 2D Game Programming, Recording Video/Livestreaming, a TON of multitasking, and of course gaming at the max setting with NVIDIA Surround.

So what do you think? Is it compatible? Are there extra parts I will need to buy to make this build work? Any advice to a first time computer builder? Are there better parts in this price range?

Thanks for your help! :)

Awesome, I was only going to overclock a bit however, because I chose a cheap cpu cooler.

Another thing that is a bit off topic, now that I know that the parts are compatible, how would I go about setting up the sli and the three screen configuration?
