Default Any Recommendations for this Tower

OK I got this Tower last year for Christmas and its been sitting in the box since then.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811146079
This year I have about 3600 dollars already saved up but my ideal budget would be about 2500 maybe 3000. I want to use this computer to design games and mix music. So i know its going to cost alot maybe even more then what i have but any ideas where to start is all i'm looking for like a motherboard and stuff like that.

My Goal:
2 or 3 monitors

My recording Equipment Listed below

Here's what I would suggest using:

CPU: Core i5 4670K (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116899) - $239

CPU Cooler: CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103099 - $35. (well, you could use the stock cooler, but they do tend to get quite noisy)

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z87-D3H - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128590 - $129

RAM: Kingston HyperX Blu 8GB - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820104173 - $86

SSD (for OS and Software): Intel 530 series 120GB - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820167180 - $120

HDD (for Data storage): WD Blue 1TB - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...9SIA2W00YU4026 - $67

DVD Drive: Samsung SH-224 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827151266 - $20

PSU: Seasonic G-450 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151124 - $75

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16832116986 - $100

The total for that is $871 - well within your budget.

You could also add a Graphics card if you want to get into gaming (like a GTX760 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130933 - for $250), but for audio work, the integrated graphics should suffice.

I'm not sure what you mean. The DVD Drive I suggested is a burner, and you don't need 2 DVD drives to copy a disc.
