Mostly wanting the ability to run 3x 1080P monitors (not 4k) and current-gen games to run in high-ultra at or very near 60+ fps. Since first time build any glaring compatibility issues or better deals on certain pieces I could do? Definitely up to suggestions as I'm sure most of you have more experience with this than I.

I picked the 850W PSU in case I decide to SLI down the line. SSD/HDD/OS in laptop I will rip out and put in this build. Also, I have an optical drive somewhere I can stick in so don't need to purchase.

Thanks in advance.

going to need another gpu or 2 if you want to run current games on high/ultra at 60+ fps on 3 monitors

you definitely need to step up the GPU. Either get a second 760 2gb or get a 770 4gb.

Thanks for input guys. I'll be probably using the EVGA Step-Up Program eventually on the 760. Just trigger-happy since got tax return and tired of over-heating laptops trying to play certain games on low. o7

I think it's overkill on the motherboard. You can get something for $130 or so. And overkill on the case. But I'm just a cheap case kind of guy. I'd do more of a $50 case. Overkill on the PSU as well. A good 750 for SLI, or even down to a 500 for a single card would be fine. You could even save $20 on the cooler.

With the money you save by dropping those down, you can bump up the vid card.

You can still stay within the $1000 range with a 770.
