Default New Computer for gaming with 3 monitor ( Eyinfinity )

Hello everyone, I really don't know much about computers and need some help. Below is a summary of what I need , and lowwer is a quote that a store here in montreal, Canada made me. If you have any changes to suggest to what the store offered me, please let me know.



My budget for the new computer is: 1200$ - 2000$

What are the primary uses for this computer: Gaming with 3 screens ( eyinfinity ).

What software do you intend on using on the computer? Either Windows 7 or 8. I was told that windows 7 looks more like my old xp and that it could be a good option

Do you play games? If so, what type of games? Mostly WW2 games like COD waW, red orchestra, rising storm, etc

Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it? a lot running

For a motherboard I would suggest using a ASUS maximus. Newegg.com - ASUS MAXIMUS VI EXTREME LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
For the gpu i would go with a R9 290X. Newegg.com - ASUS R9290X-4GD5 Radeon R9 290X 4GB 512-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
Also you need some ram. I suggest at least 8GB but i recommend 16GB. CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 Desktop Memory Model CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10R - Newegg.com

I think it's a ripoff. Here's a similar system with more RAM for less money (just add the EVO SSD for 104 bucks off Newegg. It's out of stock)

CPU:
Newegg.ca - Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell 3.4GHz LGA 1150 84W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646I54670K

Motherboard:
Newegg.ca - ASRock Z87 PRO3 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

RAM:
Newegg.ca - Team 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model TLD316G1600HC10ADC01

GPU:
Newegg.ca - EVGA SuperClocked 03G-P4-2783-KR GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card

PSU:
Newegg.ca - SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Case:
Newegg.ca - Corsair Carbide Series 400R Graphite grey and black ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

HDD:
Newegg.ca - Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Windows:
Newegg.ca - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - Operating Systems

Optical:
Newegg.ca - ASUS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS - CD / DVD Burners

$1439

So with same SSD it would be 200 cheaper and you get the satisfaction of building your own as well as the learning experience.
