Assistance with Quad-Monitor Build

Hello everyone.

I am coming up with a build for a Quad-Monitor Setup (Along the lines of this: http://support.amd.com/PublishingImages/Support/eyefinity/3x1landscape_plus1.jpg except the top one will be a 15" I already own) and not exactly sure if I have the correct parts.

I have been making a setup on PCPartPicker (Here: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/xgHK) and been wondering if there is anything that I have wrong or need to change to get the setup I want.

Budget: Wanting around $1200ish area, can do $1500 or so.
Country: US

(Also, if for any reason having that 4th monitor is gonna make or break spending too much money, I just won't use it.)


Thank you.

  4. Would I be fine with switching the Liquid Cooling with the Hyper 212 Evo? I'm not one for liquid cooling :P

    I need 2 graphic cards? Just to be certain I only plan to use 3 for gaming (Eyefinity) while the top 1 is normal use.
  5. for quadmonitor u need 2 videocards yes, this is the recommanded route.

    and the hyper 212 evo is fine.
