Wow 32GB? Do you need that much memory for some reason?

that's the thing, i dont even know really. most i've ever had was 4gb. i'm starting to do more video/3d though. after taking some suggestions i read some reviews that ram speed didn't make a vast improvement and on some things the lower speeds were actually more beneficial. Also that higher speeds were less reliable long-term by significant percentages. Thinking I need this to last a few years I purchased that 1600 cas 9 32gb.

i think my main concern now is I just also purchased my first ssd (samsung 840) and it's only 120gb. I remember reading about windows page file being associated with your total ram taking up valuable space on the ssd. Ofcourse I will be looking into that in more detail before my parts arrive.

I think 16GB would be plenty for what you plan on doing. You could always refuse the order from newegg and they'll refund you the money so you could get the 2133 16GB's

Also could consider going with an ASRock Z77 board like the Extreme 4

If you're worried about overclocks all the Z77 boards will overclock to around the same. My 99 dollar Pro 3 runs my 3770K at 4.8Ghz. I'm sure i could hit 5Ghz if i wasnt temp limited
