    Default New Gaming Build - Looking fro feedback

    It has been 4 years since I built my last PC and the only internal component I have upgraded was the video card (GTX 690 to GTX 980Ti). Below is a notional build. I am looking for any and all input on what it is good or bad.

    Time frame - By the end of Jul (spare Windows 8 code I can use to get Windows 10 free)

    Budget - Whatever it takes within some reason.

    Usage - Primarily gaming. Occasional CAD, photo and video editing.

    Existing Components - Monitor (Dell P2715Q - 4k), Keyboard (Logitech G11), Mouse (Logitech G502), Speakers (Klipsch Pro Media Ultra 5.1), Power Supply (EVGA 1200 P2 - got it half price when I bought the 980 Ti)

    Possible Components:
    Case: Cooler Master HAF X (I used for my last build and like the front hot swap bays)
    Video Cards: Two EVGA 1080 GTX FTW
    Motherboard: EVGA X99 FTW K
    CPU: Intel Core i7-6950X
    CPU Cooler: Thermalright Silver Arrow IB-E Extreme or Le Grand Macho RT
    Memory: Gskill TridentZ Series 4 x16GB
    Boot Drive: Intel 750 Series 1.2TB
    Data Drive: WD 4 TB Black
    Optical Drive: LG WH14NS40
    Firewire: Vantec 3 port (need it for scanner and video camera)

    I am not wed to any particular store or component at this point. I have no desire for water cooling.

    Tell me where I can improve or went overboard. I am already thinking i7-6850K may be better choice

    You have chosen quite good components, the only thing I recommend you to go with new gen GPU, as it will be more future proof. Also if you are planning to upgrade in july you can consider going with ryzen 3rd gen CPU.
