GPU: MSI GTX 780
RAM: corsair vegance 16gb (2x8)
MOBO: Asus Z87 PRO LGA

  1. Best answer
    Your motherboard and CPU are not compatible. Your CPU is LGA 2011 (X79) and you motherboard is LGA 1150 (z87).
  2. That build deserves a better power supply. I'd recommend at least a 650W model from XFX, Antec, Seasonic, or Corsair (TX, HX, and AX series only).

    I agree. Also, if you are going to be spending GTX780 level money, why not get an i7 4770k cpu? It would work great with that motherboard.

    What about the Intel i7-4930K? It should perform better.

    Depends on what you're doing with the PC. If you're not doing heavy editing and/or rendering all the time, the 4770k is more than enough.

    The 4930k still needs an LGA 2011 motherboard though.
