What is your price range for this PC?  What site are you getting the parts from?  I take it those are various parts you are considering for the individual components.


Those are good monitors, but I would get an IPS-based monitor like the ASUS VG Series VG23AH for better color quality and viewing angles.  Your build looks good but there are a few other things you may want to consider...


As you are rendering, I would consider the FX-8350 since those CPU's tend to do well with highly parallel tasks, such as that.  With a high-end GPU like the 7950 or 7970, it would be more of a "side-grade" to go for the i5 3570, especially in real world conditions.  If I had to choose from those specific CPU's, I would go for the 3570.  Remember, games tend to rely on the GPU more than the CPU.


I don't know of any Intel 1155 motherboards that offer full PCI-E X16 speeds on two slots in SLI or Crossfire mode.  This isn't an issue in single GPU configurations, but, as GPU's get faster, it might lead to a small performance decrease.  Only LGA 2011 and 990FX boards offer this.


You don't need super-fast RAM, DDR3-1333 or 1600 is more than enough.


I suggest getting a 120GB or larger SSD as you will fill it up rather quickly at 60GB.


You could also go for Windows 8 and live on the desktop, like most people do.


Since you're using a full ATX tower, the water cooling components should fit the case, but, unless you are doing some extreme overclocking, you may find a high performance air cooler most practical.
