Not exactly sure what you need 24gb of RAM for but if you are sure you need it you might as well get the best for your $1000.

I would get this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Faster timings and comes with that Turbulence II cooler.

It will work fine. You may have to set the memory profile to XMP but it is just a BIOS setting. Why do you need 24gb of memory?

To be honest that much memory can severly limit any overclocking you might be going to do ( its crazy to get a 980x and not overclock it ) Not to mention there are really no gains in daily use from having more than about 6gb unless you work with huge audio/video files on a daily basis. If you are building with the highest end components you can find you might want to do a bit more research. You should understand things like Xtreme Memory Profiles ( XMP) Or pay someone to do it since money does not seem to be an option.
You are going to be playing at insane resolutions too I guess ( above 2560 x 1600 ) to get much benefit from 2 x 5970s.

As I said before it will work fine. You just have to enable XMP and manually set the voltages to 1.65v. I have used those same modules ( not 24gb I do not build servers :D  ) on i5, i7 and AMD builds with no problems.
