Im going to build a desktop and have picked out the following components so far:

Intel Core i5 3570k

Corsair Vengeance 16GB (8x2 GB) DDR3 1600MHz

EVGA GeForce GTX 770 Superclocked with ACX Cooler 4 GB GDDR5 256-Bit Dual-Link DVI-I/DVI-D HDMI DP SLI Ready Graphics Card 04G-P4-3774-KR

You will be fine with games and what not. You will want a power supply that is over 600w, and any mid size case and ATX motherboard should do the trick.

Power Supply: Any of Corsair, Antec, Seasonic or XFX with around 600W.
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V LX

This is how I'd pick.

For the motherboard I recommend an AsRock Extreme4 Z77. Very solid board with good overclocking ability at a great price.

For a power supply, 600w+ is recommended, just like Sevenater said.
This is a good one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
You want an ATX case with good airflow. I recommend this one: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...
Hope I could help!

It says that the z77 Azrock extreme 4 motherboard is compatible with 1866MHz 8Gb RAM Corsair, but it does not list the 1600 MHz. Will the motherboard still be compatible with this RAM? Also thanks for the other two suggestions, i put them on my list.

1866mhz is the max it can go, anything under will work as well.
