I want to build a gaming rig around 3 monitors. This will be my first time building a computer. The primary uses of this pc will be gaming, programming, and a little video editing. I just need some advice on the parts I need. Here's the list so far:
Do you really need a bluray drive? It seems kinda pointless - a lot of computers now don't even need a CD drive.
You could afford a way larger and better SSD with that budget - don't skimp THERE.
Don't get a closed-loop water cooler. If you're going to water cool, go all-out. Closed loops perform worse than comparable air coolers, break more often, and are more likely to break other parts in your computer when they do.
It's pointless to get a x79 build in my eyes. It really isn't going to help gaming basically at all - get an i5-3570k instead.
The Sabertooth, of any form, is a complete and total waste of money - the thermal armor is less than worthless (It makes the mobo hotter), and it's way overpriced. Instead of getting a mid-level board with flashy bling, just get a good board.
You don't need anywhere close to 16GB of ram. Yes, I know it's cheap, but that's no reason to waste money. Get 8GB instead - I've never seen a PC go above 7, even when running GIMP, BF3, and 20 tabs in chrome.
Nice pick on the power supply - that's a good 'un.
Do you really need three TERABYTES of storage? It'll give you some issues with windows - I'd go with a single terabyte, or possibly a RAID 0 array if it won't have sensitive data on it.
As for the graphics card, Radeon handles higher resolutions better than Nvidia does. I'd get a pair of 7970 GHz editions. They'll handle everything you throw at them.
Now then. I know that my advice was all to save you money, and I know you have more to spend, but here's the thing. Even if you spend more money, you won't get hardly any better performance in return, and it'll be a LOT more expensive. No, it won't be future proofing - you're actually WAY better off saving that money and upgrading 2 years sooner than planned than blowing it all now.
