I'm about to be moving and decided it's time for a new build.

http://pcpartpicker.com/list/HqQqhq

This is my parts list currently. I want it to be a powerhouse now so I won't have to upgrade it for a while. Dual 1080 is optional just because not much will benefit from sli just yet and I can always SLI down the road. I could use my M.2 slot for a better SSD but I don't want to deal with the issues it could cause later not being able to use 2 SATA.

You can be brutal, I want a polished build when I start and I want to know I've looked at everything.

Tyvm for the information in advance.

And if anyone knows of a good 2 monitor set instead of buying 2 separate ones that'd be awesome.

You dont need thermal paste. It already comes with the cpu cooler. I would get faster clocked ram as it can have an effect on gaming performance. WD black is a bit of a waste of money. The only real benefits are the longer warranty. Its speeds are pretty much the same as a WD blue or seagate barracuda. 1000W psu is definitely not needed. 750W would already run this perfectly fine.

What is this build for?

It's going to be a gaming pc. I want to make this one last a while and upgrade the parts separately as needed and where it makes sense. Tyvm for the input
