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.
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.
It's fine. Decent motherboard and ram, but you can get a 3570k cheaper for around 220 and its superior to a 2500k.
