Hey everyone, so im ready to drop just over $2000 on a new system. I put together the list and thought I have done enough homework, however I wanted to get some opinions. Now this system I am building is not for gaming, its office use. So if my video card is overkill, please tell me. I just do not want any lagging when I am working. I will have 6 monitors going total, I have listed everything. The asterix represents what I already have on this machine and going to move over to the new machine. Only thing I am missing is a 6-monitor mount bracket, which I will look for shortly. Also let me know if I might have space issues, like with both video cards, or if i do not have enough fans, etc.. Click on the name to go to the item page for more info. Let me know what you guys think, thank you very much!

Something to note about your video card of choice the single 680, it can only drive 3 out of 6 displays, you are going to need multiple cards or a single high end amd card such as the 7970.

Also I am a bit confused by how your SSD is that expensive, plus the corsair ssds aren't to great anyways, go with intel or samsung for reliability.

Everything else is fine together.

Thank you Bob, the SSD I made a mistake, its $179.99. However there is a pretty similar Intel one, maybe $20 bucks less. Ill go with that one instead. As for the Video Card only driving 3 of 6, do you know if my other video card will drive the other 3? Right now I have two on it (DVI), and there is one extra I am not using which is HDMI.
