Not spending too much on overrated LED keyboards, amazing! It's awesome, the keyboard and mouse are good now anyways.

2x 980 Ti's and a 4k monitor.. <3_<3 And some room for an SSD of course, amazing. All 'round amazing

wow i never thought about 2 video cards before. I'm sure that will make a huge impact With higher resolutions yes!. You can see how SLI with 980ti scales on higher resolutions here. Also you can select different games on the review

You wouldn't be able to fit any more fans as the one on top and rear are included. The radiator would occupy the front panel. I chose that rad because its quieter than the H100i and has a good price(will perform great). Its also a decent one. Of course, it would be better if you can get something like the kraken X61 or corsair H110i gtx which are 280mm rad but the 240mm rad will be fine. I was already a little over your budget..

It's roughly equivalent to the 6700k, though the 6700k technically wins in single-threaded applications. Either one is more than enough power for gaming and streaming. The 5930k is a bit better suited, though. It offers more PCI lanes, so it can handle a crossfire/SLI setup much better.
