Suggestions on build idea

Hey guys I'm working on putting together a top of the line gaming build in the US. I plan on using one monitor to start, and then upgrade when I get the money. My budget is roughly $3000. I included peripherals in this PCparkpicker build here (http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2pPwm). The only other thing is i will probably upgrade to a secondary 780 Ti when I get the money and also water-cool them latter. I'm looking for what you would do differently with the build thanks!
