Motherboard is pretty solid.
The Corsair RAM looks good but is overpriced.
PSU-wise, if the 1000W seems like a better deal, then by all means go for it,
but the 850W would be suited better for your build, because of the average power consumption.
Why? While gaming you're looking at a max. power draw of somewhere around the 600W mark.

What RAM would you recommend. I just liked the look and the warranty.
I found the G2 850. I was searching with the wrong verbiage.

If this is a main criteria then buy it. If you seek for an alternative you cal look into QVL list to your motherboard or try to install any module you like of the corresponding type.

For memory modules warranty is not very important usually. You should test any module after buying it by the memtest86+ or by similar utility. If test passed with no errors then usually they never appear in the future and module will work for years if the applied voltage correct and no overheating.

I completely forgot about that list. ill look into it. In the mean time can I ask you about your thoughts on this case. i know I would need a smaller mobo, but the case looks great, supposably has good cooling, and can fit my 780's if I remove the bottom fan.

review of casehttp://www.3dgameman.com/reviews/1350/silverstone-fortress-ft-03-case
This is a good case but i think that it's too small for air cooled 780SLI especially DC2OC ones. (only four slots available at back panel and lack of volume inside of the case present). I suggest at least an ATX case with good air circulation. Like this one http://www.silverstonetek.com.tw/product.php?pid=166&area=en

I use for my 780SLI DC2OC + ASUS RIVE mobo setup HPTX LianLi PC-Z70 case. Certainly it huge but at any time I can add complete water cooling solution to my rig without using extrnal radiators or add extra gtx780 dc2oc card painlessly remaining on air cooling. For CPU cooling I use Corsair H110 with alternate fans.
When I start to play BF4 at max detail on 2560x1440 resolution the exaust from two top 140mm case fans resembles kind of furnace. smile.gif Overclocked videocards and CPU are really hot.
You can still to try to assemble your rig in the case you liked but you should buy standard stock version of gtx780 instead DC2OC ones to exaust hot air away from the case or use liquid cooling solution with external radiator.
