I'd change the graphics cards and a few other things though if gaming.

What even are monies.
Love that sound system, by the way!
I wouldn't do anything too ridiculous... Y'know, just spend a small car's worth of money on a 1440p/4k gaming monster.
Realistically, almost half of the cost is in the unnecessary SSD, so even by going with a hugely unnecessary 1TB drive, I could save a bunch of money.
I'm not even sure it's possible, but I'd aim for something with an i7-5820K, a GTX 980 Ti, 64 GB or so of ECC RAM, aaaand a Knight's Landing Xeon Phi coprocessor.
Gaming in the foreground, molecular dynamics in the background.
I'm just not sure there are any motherboards which will simultaneously support an overclocked i7 and ECC RAM. Might have to split off my dreams into two separate computers; one a gaming monster, one a workstation.
Where all the magic would happen. Common resolutions and mechanical storage are for "les pauvres". This is all about standing out and being as much a statement as it is slaying frame rates.
Most importantly, there are no cables leading to storage anywhere.
Monitoring network and storage stats by day, putting nerds to sleep by night.
For all the things.
I was going to go nuts with Dom Edizioni desks and Eames chairs, but that seemed like a whole thing just to price some furniture that only needs to function well.
Not including any networking labs and servers to have fun with(pricing out thin clients and their server would have been too much work), as well as an entertainment center.
