New Build Advice

(I posted this in the prebuilt section but I'm thinking that this might have been the proper spot.)

Hello everyone. I have been saving up for a very long time and I’m finally going to buy the computer that I always wanted. I know just a little more than your average person which means that I don’t know much. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Main Purpose: Office – A lot of windows with spreadsheets
Secondary Purpose - Movies and light gaming

Proposed Build
I7 3770 Ivy Bridge 3.4 Ghz
GPU: GTX 650 2 Gigs
Hard Drive: Samsung 830 Series 256 Gigs
Operating System: Windows 8, 64 bit
Blu Ray Reader – CD/DVD Combo
Four 23’’ Asus Monitors
Purchase Site:

1. Do I need a fan for this build? CPU fan? Hard drive fan?
2. What kind of motherboard do I need? There are so many options. Does it make a difference?
3. What kind of memory? I was going to go for a 16 gigs but I don’t know which brand and type.
4. What kind of power supply do I need?
5. Can this video card be set up to display 4 monitors at once?
6. Anything else that you guys can recommend that I should add on?
7. looks pretty cheap but is the site reputable?

Again, thanks for your help in advance!
