What is the best I can get for $2500-$3000 with this Motherboard and Case?

Budget: $2500-3000 | Location: USA, AZ | Use: 4k video editing/rendering, Web research, photoshop, occasional gaming | Peripherals required: dual 4k monitors (not included in budget [so I have a bit extra for them but hoping for around $800]) | Other Notes: Color coordination preferred

I'd like to see what I could do with these parts inluded:

CPU: Just one for now if that works I'll add another one later.

Motherboard: SUPERMICRO​ MBD-X10DA​X (destroys color coordination I know but hopefully there's a solution for that that you know and I don't.)

GPU: Leaning toward this one AMD FirePro W7100 8GB Video Card but open to suggestions

Operating System: Windows 10 pro (already purchased)

Case: Corsair 780T white (already purchased)

Not totally set on that motherboard but it seems to have all the features I want (except USB 3.1).

Thanks for the help!

For Enterprise OEM platforms, it is highly recommended to get a "Chassis OPTIMIZED FOR THE X10DAX" fromThe official page for the X10DAX: http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/Xeon/C600/X10DAX.cfm

This would eliminate a whole plethora of Misc-Sundry drive/cage/build/upgrade/compatiility issues.. Of course u could choose the 780T u have already purchased, but if I were in ur place I'd go with the Supermicro chassis.. Installing Zip-drives, etc.. ( I had a problem with an ASUS Z9PED8 in a Fractal Design Case) might prove a problem for custom non-optimized cases..

This Supermicro Mid/Mini Tower Chassis "SC732D4F-903B" is available at atacom.com for $208.44 http://www.atacom.com/program/print_spec.cgi?Item_code=CASR_SUPE_47_26

The W7000 easily beat the K4000 in this Cinema 4D MAXON Cinema 4D (CINEBENCH R11.5)

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll admit I'm confused by your opening paragraphs, could you dumb it down for me a bit?

The Motherboard I picked is an E-ATX board so it'll work in my case right? (It says it supports E-ATX boards)

Thanks, sorry I don't understand.
