The list looks fantastic to me. I'd suggest basically the same thing, except for a less overpriced SSD, though the 850 EVO is good. (I usually suggest the MX300)

The PSU is a perfect fit. It will support SLI and OC on all components and still have headroom left.

Your parts are all top notch. 2 monitors no problem

You could go with less expensive parts in most spots, but if you got the budget, go for it, really nice build.

Your build is all ready for overclocking

If you really don't want to overclock, the following build is a non-OC bang-per-buck solution:

Intel's new Kaby Lake processors are supposed to be out for release in quarter 1 of 2017, so check for that if you don't get around to building by the end of this year.

And as always, I'm glad I could help out!

awesome! nice to know as well. may just hold off on a cpu until that is released and people get their hands on them for reviews/opinions!
