First things first, I have posted this in a lot of other forums but I still need more ideas before I go and start buying stuffs cause I dont wanna regret anything in the end so Ill be posting it here too to see what others can share. If I am disobeying some of the forum rules kindly tell me ahead of time so I can delete my post. Thanks
Well I Have a budget of $2500-$4300 and I am planning to build a gaming PC... Well to be more specific this is what I would want.. First I want a long term gaming CPU, something that wouldn't need any major upgrades for the next 3-5 years (If possible) and would still be a decent gaming CPU. Well for sure im going to use this build for gaming and maybe some Video editings. Im not really sure with what games i would be playing cause ever since i move here in japan 2 years ago I only had the chance to get a laptop for work and im not that updated about the newly released games. Hopefully after completing this build i could start playing games again..
Another thing Im planning to have an eyefinity set with 3 landscape 24 inch monitors so the displays needs to be in the budget. Like I said earlier im in japan and Im going to buy most of the parts online specifically through amazon japan but not everything is in there mostly only popular items are there so i cant get my hands on other stuffs..
i only have a few knowledge when it comes to computer hardware, and i have been reading lots of reviews and threads about the good parts to get. heres what i came up with so far.COMPONENTS:CPU

Yeah thats all of it so far.. here are some of my concers when it comes to the components i chose.
MoBo - Well at first I was choosing between ASRock Z77 Extreme4, ASUS P8Z77-V DELUXE, and the Asus Sabertooth Z77, ive been searching the net for quite a while about the difference in features for dis 3 MoBos but all i can get is almost everything is the same its just a matter of choice for me so I end up choosing Sabertooth Z77 because of its unique cooling system (I need this a lot because my room temp is way high) but looking at the internet more a stumbled upon a Maximus V Extreme, Its a little bit more when it comes to price but i wont mind going for it if the outcome would be much better than the Sabertooth. I cant really understand most of the features that is in Maximus V Extreme so if anyone can help me then it will be appreciated.
PSU - I was suppose to get a HX1200 but someone from another site said that this is more than enough for the build im making. anyone can confirm that?
CPU Cooler - was suppose to just go with the H60 but it looks like that is one of the things i cant get through amazon japan. Its either an H80 or an H100 for a difference of $10 why not go H100 Right
Note: Yes I know that for the H100 to fit the NZXT Phantom 410 i need to do some modding)
GPU - was suppose to get only 1 7970 but someone recommended getting two and crossfiring them for better resolutions.. well not sure about the model of GPU i chose though so if anyone can recommend a better one just go and hit me..
Case - Well I chose NZXT phantom 410 mainly just because of how it looks. I like to have a white Case and this is the best one i find so far and again if anything can recommend something much better im open for suggestions as long as its white.
Display - I was thinking of getting the SyncMaster Full HD 3-panel Multi Display System but its not available in amazon.co.jp and been trying to search the web anywhere else i can get it but it seems like its really rare around here. so I ended up with that.
I linked everything to newegg for viewers convenience but the prices of everything in newegg and in amazon japan is different, some are much more expensive and some are way cheaper than on newegg. All in all i still have around $1400, since there still some left in the budget an upgrade on the parts wouldnt be bad, doesnt matter if I maxed out my budget since I saved this up just for my build..
Oh yeah I already have the optical drives i needed so no need to recommend those
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated .. thank you
