I'm ready to finish ordering parts. This will be used for Adobe CC, all purpose editing & general development business. I wanted room to expand in the future. Not gaming or over-clocking right now. Any final thoughts would be appreciated.

I wonder if this mobo might serve your needs: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-motherboard-gax99ud4 Perhaps not quite as much expansion upside as the Asus, but looks pretty darned close, for 1/3 less.

Also, the CPU you've selected has only 28 PCIe lanes. For a single graphics card, this should be fine, but if you decide later to do SLI, you may also want to upgrade to a CPU with 40 PCIe lanes.

Solid rig! Nothing I'd change except for personal preferences.

I think those monitors are a bit overpriced for what you're getting but if you require 25" and want the silver look they're a good find.

Here's the monitor I would go with... http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-monitor-vs239hp

Here's the GPU I'd go with in place of that Zotac... http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-video-card-gvn970g1gaming4gd
