Your RAM will not work with your MoBo. You have to have 1.5V rating.

Other than that it will work but you can do better. Your MoBo is for single GPU set-ups. Perhaps a Gigabyte z77-d3h or a Asrockz77 pro3 will work for cheaper.

Also, you need to get a good quality PSU. A faulty PSU can cause you a lot of problems and even fry your entire system. I would strongly encourage you to spend a bit more in this area. Good PSU brands include OCZ, Corsair, Seasonic etc.

For gaming, I would spend more for a card. What is your budget?

Thanks for reply :D 

So I'll just change...

Ripjaws X Series 8GB PC3-12800 Dual Channel DDR3 - 1.5V

And the PSU will be CX600 V2 from Corsair


My budget is around $1000 and the current build is already around there.

If I get the Gigabyte z77-d3h it is certaintly cheaper, but is it neccesary?
