Hey there, Thoughts:

Make sure you have really good cooling on the GPUs. They are going to get hot. Might even be worth considering something custom on a build this expensive. You picked the external blower kind, right?

With this kind of budget and power I would consider getting a 27" monitor that goes above 1080p. Within 4 years mainstream PCs will be following Apple into retina display territory, and your GPUs are certainly capable of handling it now.

Edit: Also, 680s in SLI are massive overkill for basically everything. At least the higher resolution will help you challenge them a little.

Agree. This is totally your call. No tech savvy person is going to have problems they cant fix.
