Do you need peripherals, Windows, and monitors to be included in that budget?

This is $1523.22 total. IDK if there's any point in trying to spend more than this. It's already a very powerful build.

Well, if you throw in another $100, you can get a higher capacity SSD such as the Vertex 4 256GB instead of the Plextor M5S 128GB that is in my current recommendation if you want to. It wouldn't help gaming performance, but you could put more on the SSD.

I'd recommend that you stick with the two 7950s. They scale better than the 670s with high resolutions and are better for overclocking.

What resolution do you want to play on? You say 3-4 displays, but not what resolution they'd be. Also, I recommend sticking with three, at least when you're playing games. Four would have bezels in the middle of your view and that's non-optimal for gaming.

There is no on-board GPU. The CPU has an on-die GPU, but there's no GPU on the motherboard.

IDK if you can use the IGP of this system simultaneously with discrete graphics on the PCIe buses. If not, then you should be able to attache the fourth display to the graphics cards without a performance hit anyway or you could throw in a $30 or less graphics card for it.

Less than $20 (after MIR) for a 6450 is a great deal if that becomes necessary.

You can do that, but it doesn't change anything from what I said. The GPU is on the CPU, not the motherboard, and the integrated GPU and the discrete GPUs might not work simultaneously.

If you want to change your motherboard, then you can do so; that board is compatible with this system. However, I recommend against buying such an expensive motherboard. It won't do much of anything that most cheaper boards can't do unless you're a suicide overclocker.

I want the better mobo for the Wi-Fi GO and other things for 50 doller more it does not sound that bad

and i dont think i would have to buy a cheap graphic card just to run 1 screen i would plung it into the HDMI port on the mobo

A PCIe WiFi adapter would be cheaper and have superior performance and like I said, I'm not sure if you even can use the integrated graphics of that system when you are also using PCIe graphics. If you can, then don't worry about another card, but if you can't, then it is something to consider.

It's not that bad price-wise, but it's inferior unless there are other features that you will use.

Regardless, you don't need to justify your choices to me. It's your money, I wouldn't dare try to tell you what to do with it, I will only make recommendations. No matter what you choose to do, good luck to you in it.
