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

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!
