App performance PC on 2 x 2K

I'm upgrading a PC with good SSD & HDD and peripherals; CPU, RAM, mobo and the video card will need to be replaced.

  • The main focus is something that can support a bunch of apps and browser tabs running at once + virtualization, hence the i7 and 16 GB RAM,
  • gaming will not be a priority but I'd like to hear your suggestions for units with better performance in similar price ranges,
  • it needs to support two 2K displays, preferably daisy chained through DisplayPort (could the picked mobo handle that alone?),
  • best to pick modules that run quietly on low load (how does it look so far?),
  • we'd need to make sure the CPU radiator doesn't collide with the RAM cards.

Here's the current list:
