Hi all, I'm hoping to build a new rig soon and I'm not really figuring out the QVL for RAM and such so I thought I'd run it by you guys!
Anyway, here is what I'm thinking about getting:

ASUS Rampage IV Extreme LGA 2011 Mobo
Patriot Viper 3 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 15000)
Intel Core i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E 3.6GHz
OCZ Vertex 3 VTX3-25SAT3-256G 2.5" for SSD
GIGABYTE GV-R787OC-2GD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition Video Card

Is something like compatible with each other?
Thanks!
J.

If you only plan on gaming, 32GB of RAM and an i7 3820 is COMPLETE overkill. You could save hundreds by just getting an i5 and 8GB. With that money saved, hell you could upgrade your video card to a GTX 670.

And probably trade in your Vertex 3 SDD for a Vertex 4.

If you want to game, this build is way way over the top. You'd be better off getting an i5 and a much stronger graphics card.

As well as 8GB of RAM.
