ok look at it like this if you can. in boxing we have to take a hit to give one, and 75% of the punch comes from our footing. if our footing is off and if hit we can get knocked down ( looks like a good hit ( right ), but it really was the footing ) my point is always stand strong and learn to move, and see the sings! life can hit us with weak PUNCHES and if our footing is good no weak butt punches can hurt...

Just get this bundle, http://www.newegg.co...t=Combo.1385940

And that ram seems a tad overkill. A few people recommended me this kit http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231666

SATA 6.0 is backward compatible with SATA 3.0, PCIe 3.0x16 backwards compatible with PCIe 2.0x16.

You will be fine.

It seems to be a good combo for the price tag. Get it plus any 1600MHz or higher 8GB (2x 4GB) kit you like to have.

Good choice of the components.

One question: do you really need that 2133MHz kit?

Currently price of different RAM kits are way too high. So, it would have been a good option for you to buy a a normal 1600MHz kit first and then buy a 2133MHz or anything higher frequency 16GB kit only after the price comes down.

I agree, 2133mhz is already overkill, the performance isnt that much of an increase compared to how much money you put in
