ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Hi guys i was wondering if these parts will all work together no problem, mainly can the MOBO handle the 1600 memory (it says it supports 1600 OC)? and also if i use the USB 3.0 or sata3 in the future with and SDD for instance, wil that make the dual PCI express unusable? And if theres a better build/parts for this price range that will be helpful too. Thanks a lot.

Looks like you did your research. That RAM is good with the motherboard, and the most work you would need to do to get it to work is a quick change of BIOS. Which is really very easy to do. I'd say go for it. It should run almost all games on max at that resolution. Have fun building! The vapor-x is a great choice of video card, really is super silent.
