You may want to look into watercooling hardware with that budget, squeeze out even more performance ontop of that eye-watering hardware.

Aswell, the i7-3960x has a Quad Channel memory controller. Is the RAM kit TWO kits of two sticks? (4 total) or do you just have two sticks?

Two Kits of Two Kits, 16GB Total. and I will look into water cooling. Might pick up a custom cooling kit *wink wink*

Also, instead of those Four 1080p monitors I believe having Two or Three of a larger monitor would work better.

The bezel gap will annoy the living HELL out you during usage, and having four monitors doesn't span as nicely as three in my opinion.

Same size, MUCH higher resolution.

Now eliminating bezel gap is near impossible, but by using one less monitor and increasing the resolution will eliminate a good inch of bezel gap in your view.

Oh thank you. Bezel gaps are annoying, (I am currently doing this on a dual screen HP laptop with a 2 foot bezel gap. thank you for all your help.

It's something I believe you forgot to account for, with Four monitors the object directly infront of you would be a big fat bezel.

Picking Three bigger/higher res monitors is the best way to go.

I dont have a need for 32GB of ram, I have 16Gb at a faster speed. I have 2 512GB ssds in Raid 0 and everything else I will pass on for now.

This IS always an option, basically the monitor's version of Lapping your CPU.

Carefully take it apart, removing the bezel. Voiding your warranty on $2400+ in monitors, but the bezels are no longer there.
