Default Putting together, advice appreciated!

So I was putting a few parts together, and my first question is would a single GTX 660ti run 3 1080p monitors?
Though not, but how about SLI 660ti?

I'll list the parts and then what I have already;

SanDisk 256GB Ultra Plus SSD

Philips24" 246V5LSB LED 1920x1080 Full HD VGA DVI Monitor - Glossy Black

Intel Core i7 4770K 3.50GHz Socket 1150 8MB Cache Retail Boxed Processor

MSI Z87-GD65 GAMING Socket 1150 HDMI D-Sub DVI 8-Channel Audio ATX Motherboard

MSI Z87-GD65 GAMING Socket 1150 HDMI D-Sub DVI.. | Ebuyer.com

(May end up changing the monitors because of the glossy finish)
I am currently ruuning;

Corsair Obsidian 650D
Corsair HX750 PSU
Corsair H60
MSI TwinFrozer 660ti
OCZ Agility 3 SSD 120GB
1TB Hatachi HDD
Some Generic Asus Mb
Amd FX 4100

Any feedback would be great

Grab a Samsung EVO or Corsair Neutron GTX instead for an SSD.

Why not go the smart route and go for an FX 8350 and a better video card? Neither a single or dual 660ti cards will handle 2D Surround all that great.

I only say the 8350 because you already have an AM3+ setup. Makes more sense to save the cash for the GPU department where you need it. It's also pointless spending money on an i7 when games do not utilize HT.
