    Question Compatibility Check (Please Help!)

    Okay guys here's the deal. I'm going to undertake my first build and i want to go all out (within a $3,500 budget). I've chosen out these parts mostly going off of the reviews. I just want to see if anyone spots any compatibility issues, (Mainly with the MOBO, I've read some scary reviews and some pretty awesome ones.)

    Parts are as follow: (important stuff only) - not including fan control, dvd/bluray... etc.


    WD Velociraptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 3.5" SATA Hard Drive - Western Digital

    Intel Core i7-3820 Quad-Core Processor 3.6 GHz 10 MB Cache LGA 2011 - BX80619I73820 - Intel

    ASUS P9X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard - Asus

    Patriot Intel Extreme Masters Viper 3 Series DDR3 32GB (4 x 8GB) 1866MHz Quad Kit (PC3 15000) 240-Pin NON-ECC UDIMM Memory PVI332G186C0QK - Patriot

    EVGA GeForce GTX780 3GB GDDR5 384bit, Dual-Link DVI-I, DVI-D, HDMI,DP, SLI Ready Graphics Card (03G-P4-2781-KR) - EVGA

    Samsung MZ-7TD250BW 840 Series Solid State Drive (SSD) 250 GB Sata 2.5-Inch - Samsung

    Corsair Professional Series HX 750 Watt ATX/EPS Modular 80 PLUS Gold (HX750) - Corsair

    Corsair Hydro Series H100 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler (CWCH100) - Corsair


    Corsair Graphite Series Steel Silver 600T Mid-Towe Computer Case (CC-9011020-WW) - Corsair

    ----------------------------------------

    Anyways please tell me if you see any compatibility issues, mainly concerned about the ram, it's not on the qualified vendor list for the MOBO but i see no problem with it, if you do please let me know.

    If the RAM isnt on the motherboard's support list, dont buy it.

    That build is WAY WAY overkill in so many ways and in the ways its overkill, it wont affect the longevity of it. Since nobody ever mentions where theyre at or what theyll be doing with the rig, Ill assume youre a gamer and in the US.

    [URL="http://pcpartpicker.com/p/12a18"]Here is one for $2039[/URL] that will shred thru any game you want at 2560x1600 all day long. A new Haswell CPU (dont need an i7 as the i5 performs the same in games and costs $100 less). Best single GPU on the market (performs very close to the Titan despite costing nearly half). Best power supply on the market, most durable motherboard on the market, SSD for your OS and programs, high end CPU cooler so you can do some serious overclocking should the mood hit you and a nice big roomy full tower case.

    Ofc, sorry. The rig will be used for gaming but also ill be heading to college soon for Web design & Dev as well as software engineering... So ill be using it for that too and i assumed the 2011 chipset was good for the longevity and read that the mobo was the most future proofed there was.. I do plan to add more gpu's later on for more monitors

    2011 isnt worth it IMO. Haswell will work just as well for work and school applications and will work just as well for gaming all while costing a good bit less.

    Web dev and programming doesn't even need that good of a system. I do web dev on a VPS when I'm on the go and thats just a 1 core, 2GB RAM server. I use sublime text and vim and both of these use very little of your system.

    Heres my suggestion: [url]http://pcpartpicker.com/p/12do4[/url]
