And of course, part reasons:

  • CPU: The i7-5820k doesn't support more than 2 videocards, so I put in a 5930k. Very powerful.
  • Cooler: The CPU doesn't come with one, so I put in a 280mm NZXT watercooler. It should be able to cool the CPU really well, and allow you to overclock.
  • Motherboard: A white/black motherboard, since motherboards don't really come in all white. Despite this, I think it will fit the theme perfectly. There isn't an X99 sabertooth model motherboard at all atm, and I Don't think that any motherboards have the TUF Thermal armor, so no painting that white, unfortunately.
  • RAM: 32gb of blue g.skill. It fits the theme, and is more than enough for your needs. g.skill is also a fairly reputable brand, so it should work out very well.
  • Storage: Two 850 Pro SSDs to put in raid 0 for super fast load times, and a 4tb HDD for mass storage. All from reputable brands, and all in all it should satisfy your needs for storage.
  • Videocards: 3-say SLI with gtx 980s. Your gaming performance will be absolutely exceptional, and I Don't think there is going to be a single game that you won't be able to play on max settings at resolutions lower than 4K. Except for games with scaling issues, of course stares at Watch Dogs
  • Case: The white 760T. It's a great case with plenty of space for upgrades in the future.
  • PSU: The ever so famous Corsair AX1200i. Very stable and reliable unit, it will power the system without struggle. Fully modular as well, so cable management will be easier. I should also mention that Corsair sells sleeved cable sets that would greatly improve how the system looks.
  • OS: Windows 8.1. It supports all your RAM and will give you a free upgrade to windows 10.
  • Monitor: not sure if you needed one included since you didn't clarify, but I put in a 4K resolution monitor. Your system will run a lot of games at high-ultra settings with the current videocard setup while getting decent fps, but otherwise everything will look beautiful anyways.

So with that out of the way, the build falls into budget, but there are still a lot of routes you can go with this sort of budget.

For example, if you don't need a monitor because you already have one, you could remove the 4k monitor and NZXT cooler and put in a custom cooling loop, which would allow great cooling for both the CPU and GPUs.

If you need other peripherals as well, you could remove one of the SSDs and afford an awesome mechanical keyboard and mouse.

If you're a snob for playing games at nothing but max settings with amazing framerates you could get a 2560x1440 resolution monitor, which isn't as high resolution as 4k but still higher than 1080p, and you'll get amazing framerates. If you wanted to invest even more money into getting the Asus ROG G-Sync 1440p monitor, that's another option, if you want all the bells and whistles a bell and whistle manufacturing plant can come up with.

There are many ways you can go with the build, so keep that in mind when contemplating final parts and the final decision about the build in general.

I think SLI 980 is enough.
