Hi there, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post, but could someone please tell me if this set-up will work together for a gaming PC. It will be used for gaming BF3 etc and multiple monitors with maybe some rendering and video editing here and there. Surfing the web fast, youtube and recording also is this enough? Or too much?

HDD: 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black
MOBO: Asus M5A99X EVO
CPU Cooler: Corsair Liquid Cooling H80i
GPU: Gigabyte Radeon HD 3GB 7950
PSU: 750w Corsair
DVD Drive: Asus DRW-24B5ST
RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB)
CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K

Please tell me if this would work running dual 24inch monitors.
I was thinking about adding a second GPU later on for 3 monitors would that work?
And please reply with suggestions you have.
Thank you :)

That setup should be strong enough for most anything, though for the load times, Id suggest an SSD - specifically a 120GB version from mushkin, corsair or samsung, as the load speed on them are like night & day for general day to day tasks and loading games - I have a 120 GB Mushkin SSD that I spent $110 on and its fast.

they are basically usb flash drives, but on a much faster bus-SATA,and they should always be paired with a hdd, as they are still a brand new tech with some max read and write limits and storage size limits
