the processor
Intel Core i7-3960X 3.3 1 LGA 2011 Processor

what do u think about this ram
Corsair 16 GB (4 x 4 GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM Quad Channel Memory Kit for XMP 1.3 for AMD, Intel P67, Z68 and X79

i will buy 32 GB thats means all the slots of the Motherboard will be used is that ok ?

yep but get the 3930k, there is essentially no difference in performance or specs but it is massively cheaper

corshair makes good memory, but you wont really gain anything by fulling up the mem slots, 16gb is plenty, besides the spacing of the modules will allow for cooler temps and better ventilation, but its your choice

Thank u for ur respond I'm working as interior designer do u think 16 gb will be enough for 3D max rendering and autocd usually I'm running 3 to 4 application together thats why I'm afraid It won't be enough

you dont need to worry, 16gb is plenty even if 3d max and autocad are rendering simultaneously

are you going to get the 3930k instead

it has 3mb less cache which makes almost no difference and is clocked about 200mhz slower, which makes no difference aswell and can easily be made up with basic overclocking, but its $400 cheaper
