If this is for gaming then you are way overkill on the RAM
2 x4 gig is more than enough

I would also use a cheaper motherboard . All boards with a 990FX chipset will perform identically . Spend $100 less , and use the money you save to get yourself a Samsung 128 gig SSD as a boot drive

If thats the EVGA graphics card with the reference cooler with a single centrifugal fan then avoid it . Buy one of the later models from Gigabyte/ASUS/ etc with multiple fans
Quieter and cooler

You will need a 600 watt power supply
