It's compatible but your spending 1400 dollars on out dated technology that performs worse on games. Get an i5 2500k processor and a p67 board and if you really feel like you need that much ram get 4x4GB sticks for it. That alone will save you one grand and will perform better for gaming.

also 24 gig with win7 32bit? you wont see 20 gigs of it as 32bit o.s can only see 3.5gigs max
you will need win7 64bit.

if your just playing games and doing a little productivity you may as well get a 2500k or 2600k with 8 gig of ram as above suggests.
if your doing productivity professionally then the 980x is a lot of cpu but only worth it if you are actualy gonna be using it.

so if you went down the say 2600k route you could upgrade your gfx to a 590 and stay within budget. not only would you get similar cpu performance as the 980x you would get x2 the gfx performance to boot.
