Hey guys, after many months of wrestling with various different kinds of builds, whether I want watercooling and atx vs micro-atx vs mini-itx. I've finally decided on going with a Mini-ITX SFF build.

This will be my first build and my goal is to create as close to a monstrous gaming case as possible but the option of doing some 3D and video editing work. I'd use programs such as Solidworks, AutoCad and Adobe Premiere.

So here's the parts list

Case: Cooler Master Elite 130 or BitFenix Colossus Mini
Mobo: Asus VI Impact
CPU: i7 4770K
RAM: GSKILL Trident X Series 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1866 (Cas Lat - 8)
SSD1: ADATA SX900 128GB (For OS and Basic Applications)
SSD2: ADATA SX900 512GB (For Games and Bigger Applications)
PSU: Corsair AX 760W
Cooling: Corsair H80 (Elite 130) or H100i (Colossus Mini)

So my question is, is there anything that you guys would change about this build? Maybe even suggest a different case that I could use. I would like to do zero to as little modding as possible just because it's my first case.

Also I'm planning on using 2 Dual Monitor (1080p) setups but I'm wondering what the best way to go about doing this is.

One setup at the standing desk and one at the sitting desk. So what would I use to hook it all up? I plan on using the HDMI output on the graphics card to hook up to the TV and the DVI's to hook up to the monitors. Any help on this would be much appreciated.
