I am a noob building a pc over the next couple of months and would like some input by the experts here. I would like to keep this system for the next 5-10 years before building a new one. I will be using Windows 8 as my operating system. I will want to probably use 3-4 monitors in the future so I will be upgrading the video cards later on. As of now I have come up with this build. Anything I might be missing that you can point out would be helpful. All input and opinions whether positive or negative will be appreciated.

Case: NZXT Phantom Full (7 Fans/4 Included)
Processor: Intel i5-3570k
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe
Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 32GB (4X8GB)
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB
HD: Seagate Barracuda 3TB (3)
Optical: Lite-On Blu-Ray Burner IHBS212-08
Card Reader: AFT PRO-55U
Graphics: EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB (2)
Sound: Asus Xonar Essence STX
TV: Hauppage WinTV-HVR-2250

Get only 16gb of RAM. 32gb is stupid and pointless.
You have no PSU listed.
Motherboard is super overpriced. Spend no more than $150 on a motherboard.

Alright I've now decided based on your input to switch the memory and motherboard. I'm now going with the Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2X8) and the Asus P8Z77-V Pro instead of the deluxe. I know it's still more than the $150 you said but it's still cheaper than the other one. 2 questions though. What wattage psu should i get and when i figure that out what do you think of the Seasonic X Series?

Seasonic is the best .
