Will this build work?

I'm a noob when it comes to things like this, please tell me if this build would work. Also, if there is anything I could do to make the cost lower.
Thank You!

    Ram
    The ram you picked won't work with AMD, it is triple channel and AMD only supports dual.

    Go with an i5 750/760 build if you want SLI. For sure do not go with 2XX series, go with 4XX
  2. You can save $10 and get a faster HDD if you get a 1TB samsung F3, it comes with a $16 off promo code

    6GB of ram isnt going to benefit you over 4GB in most applications and the 3x2 kit would make the AMD board run in single channel mode which would hurt you, i suggest dropping down to a 2x2 kit and saving ~$50

    I read some reviews about the motherboard you chose for me. People are saying that they had to send it in multiple times because the ones that they got didn't work. I will consider buying this one though, because others say it worked perfectly. Thank you recommending the case and the graphics, is there a higher graphics card that would work better though? $100-$175.
    Thanks!

    Would be a bit more powerful. Remember, if you want to go with NVIDIA then go with an i5.

    Wait a few weeks for the new 6000 series graphics cards from AMD, they are the nvidia 4XX fix.
