  1. Best answer
    You will need a better motherboard as that one is missing the motherboard VRM heatsink in the top left.

    This would work
    However, if you want to get big into overclocking, the extreme 4 would be better, but that is a bit more expensive.

    Also, I would switch that CPU to an i5 4690k, and put that money towards a better GPU as you will gain more in the gaming category.

    I would get this GPU if you got the i5 (the 280x)

    Or this GPU (770)
  2. Why not RAM that's clocked higher? 1600 MHz or more?
    Also, aren't you looking at the newer Devil's Canyon processors?
