The components i have chosen as of now are

Mother board - ROG Maximus VI Extreme
CPU - Intel Core i7 4930K
GPU - 3x ASUS DirectCU II GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB 384-bit GDDR5
RAM - Corsair Dominator Platinum (2x16) 32GB 2133MHz DDR3
PSU - Cooler Master M2 Silent Pro 1500W
CPU Cooler - Corsair H100i liquid
Storage - SAMSUNG 840 EVO 500GB SATA III SSD
Storage - Western Digital WD Green 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s HDD
Sound Card - ASUS ROG Xonar Phoebus
Cabinet - Cooler Master Cosmos II or Corsair Obsidian Series 750D

I'll be swapping out all fans on the rig for NOCTUA fans(CPU Cooler included) cause i love their build quality and the noiseless operation. I haven't decided on the cabinet yet, I want to know which is better.I also want a good blu ray reader/DVD writer and a good gaming/entertainment monitor(s). And most of all is the ASUS ROG Matrix GTX 780 ti GPU worth the extra?

I want opinion on this config and suggestions to improve it. i don't want the suggested components to be over priced for the improvement they provide. There is a 15% chance that i might OC later but a definite NO for now.

P.S: Saying "sky is the limit" would be putting a limit on my budget...
 
A definite 'no' for now, yet you're spending all this crazy money on parts built specifically for overclocking? If you're not going to be overclocking, and you'll be using the PC strictly for gaming, you can get the same performance for a lot less money. Right now you're looking at spending around $4,500. You could get the EXACT same performance with:

I'm really sorry i forgot to mention this but I also work a lot on CAD and do a lot of video/music editing and mixing. I have a small studio in my house. and after having a chat with my friend( after i posted this) I'm definitely going to OC the computer as I didn't know how to OC and my friend said he would do it for me.
