My System Specs


Welcome to the board Gate!
Aside from the graphic cards, I feel my current build is very solid and relatively cheap so I'll suggest my core components and will let others chip in for graphics and power.

MSI P67A-G43 (B3) P67 ATX LGA1155 DDR3 2PCI-E16 3PCI-E 2PCI CrossFireX SATA3 USB3 Motherboard @ 123.98

Intel Core i5 2500K Quad Core Unlocked Processor LGA1155 3.3GHZ Sandy Bridge 6MB @ 239.99

G.SKILL Ripjaws X F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 Memory @ 36.99

400$ gets the basics out the way, and that leaves us 600$ for the remaining.
Since there are many components you will be re-using, there are only a few more components we need to gather.

Power supply
Graphic card(s)

You are unsure about the number of monitors and that's alright. That's often the biggest decision to make. Knowing you and considering a bunch of non-related factors, let's assume you'll be going with a triple monitor setup, running at the very least 1080 on each regardless of the screen size and in Surround. Or let's put it this way... I know you'll be going triple monitor so let's quote and suggest according to that.
