Mac Pro setup for FCPX

Morning all,

I have a 3x4 room set aside as a master edit suite.

I'm mainly creating videos for web use, from a Canon C100. However we are moving to the FS7 or whatever Canon's 4K offering at NAB will be.

The current spec that I'm looking at is:

18% grey walls.

Standing/Sitting desk

6 Core Mac Pro
512GB Flash storage
Dual D700 GPUs
32GB Ram.

This will be connected to a 4K monitor for editing, 24" monitor for my FCPX bins, a production monitor for colour grading and a client 40" TV

I have no idea about monitors, so any guide on this side of things would be appreciated.

Sound wise, we will be hooking up some Genelec speakers.

Will be working off Raid 5 storage.

I'm just looking to see if there is anything I've missed and for recommendations on displays.
