RAM/Motherboard plz help

Hello I'm building a new machine and I would like some help. I've been doing some looking around on the internet to learn about the individual parts of a computer and I think I've done alright with what I've found so far. My main question is does this RAM work on this motherboard, the only reason I ask is because on the motherboard specs it doesn't say 1333mhz supported and i just want to be sure before i make the purchase

I'll post my entire build so you guys can critique what i have so far and answer my questions. thank you very much

If i made any mistakes with picking out these items please let me know.

My next question is what kind of optical drive do i need with this chassis, in the specs it says 4 external 5.25" Drive Bays; so does that mean I can't use an internal dvd burner? I ask this because the external drives all look weird to me and I don't know if they're supposed to go in a computer or not.

Also would it be more beneficial for me to go for a SSD or internal Sata I don't know the difference between the two + im not sure if ssd drive benefits from the 6gb sata transfer rate on the motherboard

Again thank you for your time ^_^

  1. ^ Any reason to go with 8GB of RAM ? As for the RAM/ Mobo question, even though not specified explicitly, that mobo supports 2000MHz which means upto 2000MHz...

    As for the case, external refers to the outside of the case and not external drives, so you can use a standard internal DVD drive...

    How about newegg? prices are cheaper and also you can find good combos...
  2. Does it matter what interface hard drive I use? I noticed there are different interface hard drives and I don't know what that means. I know there's a 6gb transfer rate that comes on the mobo so do I need a 6gb interface on my HD?

    Will I be ok with this? http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4233835&sku=TSD-320AS2

    and im guessing this would work to finish off the set http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4829307&sku=L12-1312%20OEM

    Thank you for your time, again

    I'll be using this machine to play Guild Wars 2. I could possibly be doing some video work again on top of my gaming but mostly i got the 8gb of ram to overdo it
  3. ^ SATA 3GB/s is good enough for the current mechanical drives...Only SSDs take advantage of the SATA 6GB/s interface...
