Total budget 1,500 USD

Location USA

Uses Gaming, rendering for Youtube videos, 3D modeling in Blender, DVD watching

Will start with 2 monitors will go up to 4 Cost of monitors not in the budget the only thing you need concern yourself with is the ability to have 4 monitors. Mouse I already have. Keyboard is not included in the budget will purchase separately.

OS Windows 10

RAM Minimum 16GBs would like 32GBs

SSD 500 GBs minimum would like 1 TB Hard Drive 2TB minimum would like 4TB

CASE REQUIREMENTS: Must be able to hold MOBO with 2 huge video cards and a sound card. CPU cooler will be the fan type. Must have plenty of air circulation and plenty of fans for cooling. Room for 2 ssds and 2 hard drives, Optical drive, front usb ports for usb 3.0. Might add a capture card later if needed. Power supply must reflect the upgrades to come

I'm going high end on the CPU and Mother Board for longevity of the system. The price for both can be up to half my budget. CPU I'll be using an Intel i7-6700 as to which one help

I'll be starting with a single video card and upgrading after 6 months or so. Any card that can run Fallout 4, Witcher 3. Elite Dangerous on high settings will be fine.

Last thing I don't want flashy LEDs or a window in the side a plain case and parts are fine

The 5820k will treat you much better for render times than a 4-core i7.

The system should be up to your desired requirements. With a 980, you should be able to game on two monitors without much issue at 1080p, but more than two or above 1440p will need SLI down the line.

Thank you for the advice about CPU. The build looks good with 2 exceptions I wanted a 500GB SSD which I didn't make clear in my post which has now been edited and the Video card can be lower then a 980 because I will be upgrading it later.

If those things are alright like you say so, they should be interchangable without much issue. I'd suggest the MSI or Gigabyte 970, since they offer the best cooling system (and the best overclock, by extension). Once you scale back on the 970, the budget should open up to allow for a 480+ gb SSD, either the bx200 or the 850 EVO will be fine.

Yes I need the memory I've edited my original post to reflect what I need. Why the i5 CPU when I specified the i7?

my re-did list

with this video cards 8gb of vram with let you run all of your monitors no problems it has 3 display ports a 1 hdmi and 1 DVI-I dual link and give perfect gaming ability

I also got the storage your where wanting and the I7-5820K processor and amazing cooler but you could take that cooler off and add this Ram: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/crucial-memory-ct4k8g4dfd8213 in and get this cooler: pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-rrt418pkr1 but i don't recommend it
