I'm a little concerned with my mobo's compatibility with the ram. There are so many gskill ram choices its a little overwhelming. The last thing I want is to have to return something by mail.

Everything is compatible.

RAM just has to be Dual Channel DDR3 for that board. Which you are planning on using.

IF you can afford about $10 more ($119 MOBO - $20 combo +free shipping vs. $80 MOBO with $8 Shipping) I'd go with this MOBO\CPU combo instead ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... ) - THe 770 chipset is getting pretty old and this combo has the better 790x chipset and also has a second PCI-e slot in case you later decide to add a 2nd 5770 when games start needing more.
