Ignore PCPartPicker, there is no compatibility issue with that memory. If you have questions like that ask here first. Don't listen to automated programs that base information off of specifications that are pretty irrelevant.

Both good MoBo's for sure. Also that RAM and SSD are a steal right now.

Cheers.

I'd prefer the PowerColor 7990 over all of them, looks like it runs very cool and the SSD and Ram are steals for sure. Nothing wrong with his mobo of choice, but motherboards are just a preference I guess.

SSD, do it! Haha. Especially for your beastly PC. You are saving money by not getting an i7, there is the SSD money right there. Cheers.

Why spend $2000 on a computer that boots as fast as your old one?

You can partition off a part of an SSD to cache the mechanical HDD, to faster load the most commonly used programs on that disk.

1 more thing: It makes loading windows and installing programs stupid fast.

You guys are super amazing, man. Thank you all so much for taking your time to help out. I've rep'd every one of you biggrin.gif

I'll go ahead and toss in a SSD and that PowerColor 7990 and I think we have it!

No problem at all, thanks for the rep, but that is not why we help. I think we have a winner here, or, it looks to me like this build is a winner. Don't forget to post some pictures of the finished product, I would love to see this all come together. Happy building!
