They would all technically be compatible, but I don't see the point of 64gb of RAM.
If it's for server purposes, then you should be getting a Xeon processor instead.

Does Caviar Black even have a 4TB unit? :p 
I'm not sure what you'll need that much storage for but I suggest getting 2 pcs of 2TB Caviar Greens instead, then a 256-512gb SSD.

Thanks for replying, for the 4tb hard drive I meant to say RE instead of black :p 
Also the point for 64gb of ram is for show and for making 3d hardcore games

You'll only need 16gb of RAM for that.

For producing 3d media.
I won't recommend getting anything that would just be wasted since our goal here is giving people the best bang for buck on their builds, but I won't stop you either. :p

All of those are nice parts and all are compatible. I agree with excella, you don't need 64 gb of RAM. That's overkill. You should get a SSD as the primary drive. It will give you quick start ups and load games faster.

I'd also like to throw out there that the 690 might not be a good pick. 2 670s will outperform it, especially if you're playing at 1080p - you can get 4GB vram 670s, but the 690 cheats - it only has 2GB usable for each core; thus it's like running two 2GB, downclocked 680s.
