Hi Everyone!

So i am building my first PC very soon! I am going to use this PC mainly for gaming at max settings. I like to record my games and edit videos as well, but like i said, mainly for gaming. Here are the specs:

Motherboard - Gigabyte G1 Assassin2
GFX Card - Gigabyte Geforce GTX 680 2GB GDDR5 PCI-E 3.0 - (Will buy another if supports SLI)
CPU - Intel Core i7 3930K Unlocked 6-Core LGA 2011 Processor
CPU Fan - Cooler Master X6
PSU - Cooler Master GX-750W
Case - Cooler Master HAF X
RAM - Kingston HyperX Predator 16GB (2x 8GB) DDR3 1866MHz DIMM Memory
HDD - Seagate Barracuda 3.5" 2TB SATA 6.0Gb/s - (Will have 2)

I think i have made sure it all works with each other. The case supports the PSU and Motherboard, the Motherboard supports the CPU/CPU Fan and GFX card.

Will this be okay?

PS. Sorry for posting this twice, accidentally posted in the wrong section the first time.

Hi, I would recommend purchasing an aftermarket heatsink for future overclocks, the RAM you have picked is a dual channel that is designed for LGA 1155...you want to get quad channel ram

I would get a power supply from a better manufacture like Seasonic, PC power and cooling, corsair or xfx.

I agree with alvine get quad core ram here is the compatibility list from their website

Also if you are spending this much cash go for a 7970 ghz edition or wait for the 8000 series for you gpu
and get a psu with more wattage. 750w might not be enough seeing your future plans

First, thank you for the reply.

But about the RAM. Are you saying that the RAM i have chosen will not be compatible or are you saying i am better off getting quad channel?

I went into a PC store today (MSY) and the guy said that Dual channel RAM will still work in Quad Channel Motherboards.
