$3k. Pretty ambitious build. What is this to be used for?
1. You will likely have clearance conflicts with that cooler and those RAM sticks.
2. You almost certainly do not need to spend the extra for Win 7 Ultimate. Pro or Home Premium will work just as well.
3. Any particular reason for 32GB RAM?
Well, for years, I have had a hand-me-down PC and a cheap one I am using now. I wanna go overboard with stuff and splurge. In terms of games I may be running at max is Half-Life 2, Left 4 Dead 2, and Battlefield 2 to name a few. I may run more advanced games further down the line when I build this rig. What RAM brand would you suggest? I chose this one because of the 32GB and because it got quite a bit high reviews.
