Hello all. Planning my first pc build for gaming (Elite Dangerous, borderlands, Day Z, etc) and occasional streaming. I would like some opinions and suggestions before finalizing things. Also some thoughts on the monitor because I need something cheap but decent since it's already $300 over budget ($1500 was the original plan). Also keep in mind that a 2-3 monitor set-up will be added in the future so I need to make sure I'm able to handle that.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks. I see there were a few things I didn't really need (i7, fan controller) to cut back on price.
