The STEAM dream build - Intel/NVIDIA

Looking for some input and perhaps some places where I could shave off a little bit of cash, Will have a Full size case and monitors will be a later decision. Looking to leave room for a second SLI card for later expansion for higher resolutions.

Tear it apart yall! Thanks to this community for the guidance and help.

Going to be working the deals and slowly collecting to max my cost to benefit

good build but the cpu cooler already comes with thermal paste and you can download the os on a flash drive to save some money

And also two Titan X Pascals only seeing slight losses at worst (except for one benchmark in Unigine Heaven) with x8 / x8 vs x16 / x16.
