I'm currently building a new gaming computer and am relatively new to this. I would just like to know if all the parts that I have are compatible. Here's the list:

-EVGA GeForce GTX780
-ASUS ATX DDR3 2600 LGA 1150 Motherboards MAXIMUS VI FORMULA
-Intel Core i7-4770K Quad-Core Desktop Processor
-G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM

Also I would like to know if I will be bottlenecking with this CPU if I do decide to SLI
with my GTX780's?

1) Shouldn't matter too much, but what speed is that RAM? Ideally, want DDR3-1600, since its the max speed that processor will support.

2) What power supply have you chose? That will matter, especially if you plan on future SLI, although not sure what you are doing that would require that.

3) Assuming you have the rest picked out, aka case, hard drive, OS, maybe a sound card, etc?
