I'm building a new pc in 2 weeks and I need some help filling in some blanks in my current build.
I have been following another build on pcpartpicker and I just want to know if anyone might have advice for me.

This link is for build I found on pcpartpicker - http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/b/LmP

and my current progress on what I have going for my build here -http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/2Rngx

If someone could help me pick what ram I should get and maybe suggestions for power supply.
I only have one 780ti currently, but I plan on doing SLI with another one when the price drops down in the future.

Thanks for taking the time to view my request for advice.

Awesome, Thanks for dropping this list for me. I was thinking of 32gigs of ram, but I know that it would be going way overboard. I think I might splurge for 16 gigs just so I know there couldn't be anything to slow down the rest of my system and I can multitask as many programs as I would like. I'm not sure how much ram it will take to do things like record and stream games, but I would like to have all options open with max system potential.

If you're not going to HEAVY multitasking, then 8gb is the maximun you'll need.

I just have one question for anyone that knows about ram.

Corsair Vengeance Pro 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 - http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-memory-cmy8gx3m...

Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory - http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-memory-cmz8gx3m...

The vengeance pro for $5 cheaper right now since it's on sale.

I believe the pro version is better for overclocking, but I'm not 100% sure because I read somewhere that it's better to get the regular version over the pro.

Can anyone tell me why the regular might be better than pro and if it would be a good idea to get the pro right now since it's on sale for $5 less?
