A gaming/game development pc.

Overall amazing build! Please give any input for this build! I accept any meaningful criticism.

You'll be wasting your money on the Kraken's, I don't understand the lack of SSD in a $3k build but whatever floats your boat. At least you included IPS monitors (some people cheap out on monitors). If I were you I'd consider a MATX build but if you must have ITX for some reason, go for it.

Oh and look into the EVGA x99 Micro ATX board. That thing is a beast, especially with the X99 platform! :)

Add an SSD for your OS.

Not really into the whole ssd thing. I believe a WD black series is good enough in terms of speed. (have seen it in action with brothers desktop)

Looks great, especially choice of monitor and PSU. If you're using the Kraken Pro for streaming or Youtubing, beware it's hideous microphone. Try the HyperX Cloud. Good luck!

Don't really care about the mic xD the bass and speaker quality is amazing, I went to the store and tried them they are beautiful!

Grab some low profile RAM if they don't fit, SSD are worth specially the Samsung ones. Why do you like the mini itx? How about micro ATX for some future upgrades?

Do those monitors have a DisplayPort.. port? The 980 only seems to have 1 DVI and 1 HDMI connection, leaving one monitor out

Im planning to do the side monitors using an HDMI to Displayport connector. The middle monitor will use DVI to DVI and HDMI for PS3.

It looks great but I would definitely add an SSD, and maybe switch the 2x1TB Black drives to a single 2TB Black drive if you do decide on the SSD. If you want any recommendations for it I'd check out NCIX's new "SSD buyers guide" on YouTube. Otherwise the 2x1TB drives could be put into RAID 0, since they're known to be reliable, for more speed.
