Hello BuLLeTT;

Check the socket compatibility between your motherboard and CPU choices.

Corsair HX-1050 PSU. Planning on using 3x Radeon HD7970?

Thought about a CPU cooler, HDD, SSD and optical drive?

No this is incompatible, the Rampage 4 is socket 2011, you have chosen a 1155 chip.
The Rampage 3 would be correct or any other z68 or z77 board will do (z77 to ensure full compatibility with the graphics card.
You can also get away with only 2 sticks of Ram if your only gaming (8gb), 16gb is only necceassary for rendering etc.

Most people looking to build a complete system work over in the Systems > New Build section of the THG forums. You might want to check that out.
