Honestly no it isn't system is outdated and overly powered based on looking at the configuration build.

Read some of the links so you'll understand why I came to that conclusion.
GeForce GTX TITAN Black Gaming Graphics Card | NVIDIA
*There are other possible cards that would be on par with this right about now*

Thermaltake CLP0575 Frio OCK Universal CPU Cooler Ultimate OverClocking King Intel LGA-2011 Ready Supports up to 240W TDP Dual 130mm VR Fans - Newegg.com
*Read the reviews with low rating first before the positive*

MOTHERBOARD: ASRock X79 Extreme11 Intel X79 Chipset

This board is almost 3 years old it has some problems that would make me stay away from it.
I think a while back one user or two had issues with this model.

The whole machine is a configuration mess if thats something you want for your needs we won't stop you.

You could do much better than this, whats your budget price for a computer right now ?
For under 950.00 bucks I could whip up a build or someone else on here could.
Let us know what you decided.

thank you for replying
i just noticed about the motherboard

i want to buy a pc just that can hold for long i know it's impossible but i believe if the specification were extreme the pc will be good much longer time than other standard computers.

i don't want to tell you that i have a budget, it doesn't matter
i'm looking for extreme and quality desktop for everything and if find something like this the price doesn't matter.

i didn't mention that graphics the most important thing.
can you suggest other extreme specifications ?

btw i'm not a troll

thanks

Use Blacks Instead of blues if you want performance and i don't think you need 3 video cards you could SLI the Titan Black and be good

In the next 5 yrs I seriously doubting the need for intel cpu's to be hex-cores. As such unless you are doing seriously intense cpu activity, a i7 4750k is perfectly powerful for nearly everything.

You said graphics are very important, but can you explain the main use of the computer? Is it gaming, Photoshop/video editing etc.

Helping us understand its use can help answer your question better.

You're only wanting a 27" so dual cards is unneeded, unless you're going 4k then just get 2 gpu's.
