Solved

building new rig first time, need help with compatibility/advice please

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/FTwCMp

is what im looking to build.

CPU = Intel Core i7-5820K Haswell-E 6-Core 3.3GHz LGA 2011-v3 140W Desktop Processor BX80648I75820K
CPU cooler = Cooler Master
Hyper 212 EVO

Motherboard = ASRock
Z77 Extreme6

Memory = G.Skill
F3-14900CL10D-16GBXL 8b x 4 , 32gb's total

Storage = 1 Samsung
MZ-7TE500BW 500gb ssd
and 1 Western Digital
WD3000F9YZ 3TB 7200 rpm

Graphics card = ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 AMP! ZT-90204-10P G-SYNC Support 4GV 256-Bit DDR5 HDCP Ready Video Card
Case = Corsair 750D
Power supply = Cooler Master
RS750-ACAAB1-US 750w 80+ bronze

Optical drive = LG WH14NS40 bluray/dvd/cd writer
operating system = microsoft 8.1

So essentially I want to play nearly any game on high to max settings. I will be making this a triple monitor build rather than 4k because I like how it looks better as well as I feel I can be more productive. With this system I fully intend to play games on max settings, record/stream, edit footage, with minimal lag time doing anything. I was told I should go for that processor w/ 6 cores and 32gb ram to be able to handle if im rendering a video while streaming and also playing games so I have minimal down time.

the more intensive programs I will be using are :
Zbrush
adobe after effects / photoshop
gimp
fruity loops
streaming software
recording software
etc...

the more intensive games I will be playing are :

Wildstar
battlefield 4
titanfall
crisis 3
hawken
star wars the old republic mmo- rpg
etc...

Im mainly looking for any compatibility issues any of you may spot, but if you feel I should down grade or upgrade anything or switch brands due to consumer issues please let me know. I highly highly appreciate any input as I would like to start ordering these parts tonight. Also if any of you enjoy these games let me know! always love making new friends.

    I chose this for you. I think these parts are what is good for you friend. The CPU you chose is not compatible with the motherboard that you had in your original post. Also, this build is much better for whatever you will need for a very long time. Hope you have a nice day. If you do get this build, you won't be disappointed ha!

    The dude has a budget, if he didn't have a budget, might as well get the Noctua's NH-D14 or maybe even a Corsair's H110. It will be better than Dark Rock Pro 3.

    /agree

    I would swap the SSD for an MX100 and use the savings to buy a nicer HSF for the CPU but other than that, I really like the build above. Great quality parts all around.
