I'm trying to make a desktop that wil be able to run any game I throw at it and have an easy time rendering videos.

I'm open to any suggestions and ideas. This will be my first build. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Brad133/saved/PhVBmG

Okay so...this is a lot to look at. You can spend $2000 and get it to run anything. I'll seriously cut down on the cost here. It's disorganized and wayyyy too much money, I'm going to assume you don't care what you spend, so I'll still make it good.

Took some fans away, YOU DON'T NEED THAT MANY. Changed the motherboard, it's so effing pricey! Changed the CPU, $1000 CPU? Yeah no. Changing your storage, it's so disarrayed I barely know how to approach this. 2 SSD's and 2 HDD's will do just fine. Not touching your peripherals. Good monitors, won't touch those. Now that I've removed a lot of stuff, the wattage has been greatly reduced although it will take a lot to power the 3 monitors, so I'll change it to an 750W. Cheaper optical drive, it's a disc reader, not a GPU. Get a cheap one. Knocked $3000 off, but honestly, there's still a lot of unnecessary things, but I won't touch it.

You don't need 64GB of RAM. Horrible SSD selection. Why two HDD's. A 1050W PSU is total overkill for this. You don't need a Bluray drive. You don't need a pro copy of Windows. You don't need a soundcard. You don't need that expenvise of a wifi adapter. A fan controller would be a horrible idea since it offers worse control over fans than your motherboard. I would get PWM fans. You are going to need another GPU for that monitor setup. That mouse is **** and belongs no where near this 5K build. You could get a better keyboard.
