its compatible, but if you are getting all of this for 1500 in USD in U.S stores, then theres something wrong somewhere.

All new build that is only different in MB with less IO and a cheaper case
Otherwise much better bang for buck

Go with 16 GB of ram and a larger SSD. Also check out the ASRock series as they include a tune utility to use your extra ram as a Ramdisk. It's a noticable difference and allows you to move your page file to ram instead of caching off the SSD (wear) or using the slow 2TB. If you are sold on the Asus you can also pick up some other programs to manage the Ramdisk but they aren't as slick, at least in my opinion.
