  1. Don't use 2 separate ram kits. Just get one 4 x 8gb kit. Two kits most likely won't work together.

    You certainly don't need a 1000W PSU for one gtx970. And only 750W for 2. I gather you already have it though (no price)

    I had the 3820. Great overclocking CPU. But I sold it and got a 3930k - more cores for faster video editing.

    You know you can get an i7 4790k and mobo for a lot better price? And the i7 4790k will outdo the 4820.

    See http://www.anandtech.com/show/8426/the-intel-haswell-e-cpu-review-core-i7-5960x-i7-5930k-i7-5820k-tested/6

  2. I got the mobo for 250 net.
  3. Then why did you write - "Motherboard: Asus Rampage IV Black Edition EATX LGA2011 Motherboard ($453.00 @ Vuugo) " ?

    Is there anything else you got for a different price? Why did you buy the mobo?

    and why "CPU: Intel Core i7-4820K 3.7GHz Quad-Core Processor ($329.99 @ Memory Express) ???" ?

    I used pcpartmaker.com to create my project. only. I live in Canada so Memory Express is by far the best online seller because they beat all canadians sellers plus you get 10% of the difference but I think it was 25% not long ago.

    I'm watching this mobo since the last two years. It was 525$ but I got Lucky and I found one for 250$ after an 50$ rebate in mail. To be honest with you, to me this is a very gorgeous mobo with tons of options. Of course I could pick the Rampage 5 but it is still over an 550-650 range.

    I am always buying new things with the best or latest technology. I prefer by far buying the 59XX instead of the 39XX serie's..My two kit of ram are doing fine in my Asus Formula VI you think I could get some problems in Rampage IV?

    The only parts missing are a CPU & a GPU. And an Asus Formula VI for sale.....
  5. Post the list of stuff you already have.

    Post your budget.

  7. 2 separate ram kits might not work together.

    If you're only missing the CPU and GPU then you won't need $3k.

    Try -

    i7 4930k - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116939 $640

    and 2 x gtx980Tis - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125787 2 x $690

    TOTAL $2020
  8. Would ''two'' GPU ROG MARS 760 Dual in Sli for a total off 4 (2 x 2) give me more trouble?
  9. A 980 would pretty much beat sli 760s and you only get 2 gigs of vram, not 4.
  10. Finaly I bought one Asus Stix 970 for now.

    For my ram if my 4 sticks of ram are working fine in another Asus Mo can I have no problem using them or I'm at heavy risk because it's a 4 slots technology or something else...

    Whitch is the average pourcentage that my 4 sticks could works perfecly? Sorry for thee tricky question.
