Upcoming Build - Gaming/Digital Art and Rendering

Anything to do with a PC has taken a backseat for the past...well several years.  I am wanting to get a machine that I will later SLI and watercool, but for now I would like to get it up and running.  Below is my pcpartpicker I plan on using this as my daily which will include gaming, digital art, rendering, and a little CAD.  I know I still need to add some case fans but wasn't quite sure what I will need until I get my case which should be this next week I hope.  Let me know how it looks.  The red on the MOBO is not really ideal, but it seems like a pretty good board for the $.

Build looks great. Get a i7-5820k though, unless you plan on 3-Way SLI/CF a 5930k is not needed. Also most people do not do 3-Way SLI/CF since it can be unstable.

So if I am just going to go SLI in the future then it doesn't matter?  Only if I go beyond 2 cards...No difference with rendering or anything of that nature.

I will add a second one in the future once my funds return but can only afford one and don't have the space for two 34 inch monitors.

Nope, just overclock the 5820k which will be easy with that nice air cooler you have picked out.
