Hey guys , just wondering if my build is legit and if there's anything I should add or take away from it.
First off money I don't think will be an issue but if it is I will try to stay in between $2,000 and 4,500.
This build is pretty much for lots of high end gaming, surfing the web and everyday things.
I have had some experience with hardware but that was just replacing an IDE HDD in an old 2005 desktop.
I also have had experience with my HP laptop installing new memory.

Here are my components for my first build

- Cooler Master HAF X Full Tower Case ($199.99)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=11-119-...

- ASUS Sabertooth Z77 LGA 1155 ATX Motherboard ($239.99)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

- Intel Core i5 - 3570K 3.4GHz Ivy Bridge Processor ($229.99)

- Windows 7 ($174.99)

- Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 8GB (2 x 4GB) (2) DDR3 1866 ($119.98)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

- EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 2GB FTW + Sig2 ($489.99)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

- Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 RPM SATA III HDD 3.5" ($109.99)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

- Samsung 840 Pro Series 128GB SATA III SSD 2.5" ($149.99)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

- ASUS Optical Drive ($19.99 + 4.99 shipping)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

- Ergotron Desk Mount Monitor Arm Stand ($139.99 + 8.99 shipping)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

- ASUS VN Series 23.6" Monitor LED 1920 x 1080 ($209.99 + 8.99 shipping)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

- Antec 120mm Fan (For the GPU Fan Duct) ($12.99 + 2.99 shipping)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

- Cooler Master 200mm Fan ($23.99)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

- Evercool 80mm Fan (For GPU support bracket) ($6.99 + 1.99 shipping)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

- Coboc cat7 25ft Ethernet Cable ($9.60 + 2.29 shipping)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

- Corsair AX860i 860 Watt Full Modular PSU PLUS Platinum Certified ($229.99)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

All of this comes up to a total of $2524.67 w/o tax.

Can anyone tell me how to figure out tax when ordering from newegg?

Eventually I will add in another GTX 680 for sli setup.

I was thinking about having all of the fans the HAF X intake while the top 200mm fans are exhaust.

It is possible to do push pull configuration with h100 on top with 200mm pull and 120mm fans push, except with the sabertooth z77 you have just a little room between the fans and the motherboard heatsink.

If money is not a deal, (because I have no idea how much money I will have available gift from my father) I might add some extra monitors and stands for video surround.

add 2nd monitor and stand = $2892.63

add 3rd monitor and stand = $3260.59

add 4th monitor, stand, and wall plate = $3682.53

Is there a way to maybe have 3 / 4 monitors working without unplugging the 4th, or turning off the display even though the mouse will find itself trapped into the darkness.

Maybe by the time I get the money Nvidia's newest lineup of 700 series will come out and hopefully bring down the prices of the 680 down a bit.

Remember money is not a factor but I WOULD want to keep the price range from $2,000 - 4,500

Anything I should add or anything I should get rid of?

Thanks for the help!

Newegg only charges sales tax for orders shipped to California, Tennessee and New Jersey. Then they change the local sales tax, as if you bought it in your hometown. Most online retailers will only charge sales tax for orders from states that they actually have a physical location; Newegg HQ and main warehouse in California, regional warehouses in Tennessee and New Jersey.
