GPU: Gigabyte GTX780

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16 GB 1600 MHz

    Yes, it will work, bu that motherboard is WAY too low end for this build.

    You want a z87 motherboard.

    You will easily max all games on this computer. Many parts are overkill.

    Very nice, but I would upgrade the motherboard to a full ATX rather than micro as it is the one bad thing that stands out. I don't know if you do any video editing but if you don't I would take out 8GB of RAM and buy a SSD with the money for your OS, that would make the performance alot better than the extra 8GB RAM.

    Thanks for the support, but can you tell me if this motherboard will do me better, and not cause a bottleneck in the computer?

  4. The motherboard CAN'T bottleneck. You just don't want a cheap-o board running all these high end components. Motherboards DO NOT affect performance of the computer.

    That board you linked is a very good board and will suit you well.
