Major concerns: The RAM is on back order, and I need all the parts fairly soon, (In a week or so) and I'm not sure how long it will take for the RAM to be in stock. I really like how good this RAM looks, so if I can get something for same quality/higher quality for same/lower price that would be great. If I really need to, I can go up a small bit on the RAM, but that's a last resort. Also, I didn't see my motherboard on the compatibility list of the RAM, but PCPartPicker didn't say it wasn't compatible.

Thanks in advance!

Get Corsair Veangeance as ram,and switch processor to fx-8xxx series,And the MUST DO is change the graphic card to a 670 MUST DO!!! way more powerful for the money,Or also if your willing to spend $50 more get the 7970 will run better than all graphic cards $300 specially since you have an Amd build,Either way don't get the 760.

Okay, I put Corsair Vengeance 8GB, put FX-8320 in (which is probably a good decision). Will there be a performance difference in the Vengeance from the G.Skill?

Also, Newegg has the 670 for near same price as the 760, (everywhere else is too much) but they're out of stock, so that's a problem.
