This is the build I want to do. I plan on running windows 7. I already own the SSD and HDD. I also already own the RAM. I would like to leave those three unchanged if possible. Budget ya know? I went with the AMD processor because for the price it seems to benchmark better than the i5's that I could afford. My two questions are:

1. Do the parts I've chosen seem to be compatible?

2. Will this be suitable for playing World of Warcraft, and Elder Scrolls Online that is being released this April?

Kingston sh103s3/90g SSD (for a boot drive)

Hitachi HDS721050CLA 500 GB HHD

Kingston HyperX 8 GB (4x2) KHX1600C9D3K2/8gx 1.65v

EVGA GeForce GTX760 SuperClocked 2GB

CoolerMaster hyper 212 Evo CPU cooler

ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA

AMD FD8320FRHKBOX FX-8320 FX-Series 8 Core Black Edition

Corsair CX 600 Watt 80 Plus
**update - computer runs awesome. WOW, ACBF, Skyrim all look beautiful**
CoolerMaster Storm Enforcer Mid Tower Case

Yes, these parts are all compatible. And I would also say this will max out WoW at 1080p.

The thing is I already own the HyperX dimms, but they are 1.65v.

Do I have to have RAM that is 1.5v?

What is significant about the 990 on the mobo? What I found was that if i ever wanted to run sli, I would need a 990. Is that correct?

If you already own them keep them , you get a bit lower power consumption . If you plan to OC and dont use sli, the 970 with good power phase/VRUs and a VRU heatsink will be fine.

This will run the game maxed out no problem. However, there is one thing I would suggest you to change:
Motherboard: Get ASUS M5A97 Evo R2.0 instead of ASUS M5A97 R2.0.
Evo series have a good potential of overclocking as it has 6+1 power phase instead of 4+1. Will be useful for future gaming too.
