Workstation Build Suggestions

Hi PCpartpickers

I have a stack of four builds for a workstation.

http://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/x4Qqd6 i5-4460 CPU

http://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/7zx6BP i7-5820K

http://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/6K6h9W i7-4790

http://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/Mhwh9W FX-8370

All builds have 24GB Ram, already have a G2 750w EVGA PSU. I would also like to keep this under 1250 AUD but I can go over a little. Any fans I will purchase when a case has been locked in and preferably have a side window but definitely not required.

The reasoning for this choice of parts is because it has to:

  1. Have anywhere from 0 to 100 word documents open at one time

  2. Have anywhere from 0 to 10 excel books open at one time

  3. Have anywhere from 0 to 20 PDF tabs open in the single PDF reader window.

  4. Have anywhere from 0 to 50 tabs in Firefox. Up to two firefox windows.

  5. Have anywhere from 0 to 100 windows file explorer open at one time.

  6. MS outlook open with multiple messages open.

  7. Low level simple image editing.

  8. Four internal HDDs where two of them are 2TB and the others are 750GB

  9. Up to 4 External 1.5TB HDDs on USB ports

  10. A varying amount of flash drives (Why there are 8-10 USB ports on back panel of MoBo, also have 2ea USB 3.0 PCI or PCI-E expansions with 4 USB ports each)

  11. Support up to four 24" monitors at 1080p (using PNY Quadro NVS 420, as the PC won't be gaming but it will have video files open. There maybe other cards that can support four 1080p on DVI-D, VGA or HDMI)

  12. The PC must be able to stay on for at least a week between shutdowns.

These may occur all at once so it must be able to multi-task very well and handle the load very well. The case must be dust proof or very near dust proof as we live in a dusty country (Aussie).

I'm wondering if I've gone overkill on this or just right. Any suggestions and recommendations will be gladly welcomed. Thank you for reading.
