I'll be using this set up for work and gaming. I'll be running 2 monitors and a TV for things like Netflix. My work shouldn't hit the system too hard will mostly be connecting to my computer at the office and web design. Any changes you see that would be beneficial would be appreciated. Thanks

Take off that CPU cooler, the 120mm and 140mm AIO liquid coolers are not worth the price. A Coolermaster 212 Evo will perform just as well at half the cost.

If you really want to spend $70 some on a CPU cooler it would still be best to go air cooling if you are comparing them to the 120mm and 140mm AIO liquid coolers. At that price point the higher end air coolers start to out perform the 120mm and 140mm AIO liquid coolers by 5-10C.
