OK great then it will be able to read all the ram you put in it now and in the future.
Looks like you now have the basis for your system and a great system for upgrading later.
When you are to start building you can use this guide HERE written by one of our own Techs that will walk you through from start to finish on building your new system.

Actually found a second to make a suggestion. (I woke up early).

You don't have to worry to much about custom liquid cooling, that is pretty advanced. There is a happy medium though for liquid cooling the processor. Corsair Hydro Series CPU Cooler It's a closed loop and easy to install, maintenance free.

Not bad Ferrari for someone who doesn't want to spend money on a complete liquid cooling system to start with. :D

yeah i think i should invest in that liquid cooler fan you posted. Ive been reading about the asus rampage board, and according to reviews if i get a "DOA" board, itll happen 2-5 times. or it has a chance of running hot? (could be something theyre doing i guess) and the graphics card will be a bit warm but i think the side fan will take care of that.

I'm surprised it has that high of a DOA rate.
I am completely happy with mine and since it is a gamers board I enjoy it even more.
Investing in the liquid cooling system Ferrari linked to would be a great ideal for you I believe.

Is it cheaper that way?
Also make sure they are not offering a lower grade PSU with the bundle.
Link to the combo deal and I will take a look for you.

OK if that is cheaper then buying the case and PSU separately then I would say go for it. Cooler Master is not a bad PSU. Being 80 plus certified is a good point.
The reviews indicate a good reliable product also.
The case itself as I stated before I love mine and there is so much room inside to work with. The large fans move tons of air and it is not loud at all. This is defiantly a good choice in my opinion.

yeah i love how big it is (thats what she said) and the fans, plus its the highest rated case i can find. Although... it doesnt look nearly as cool as the "Level 10" case

my budget has increased to 2,500. I've ordered the power supply, case, and hard drive already. is there anything you can think I can add to it that owuld make a significant performance increase? I plan on streaming to Justin.tv and other places , if that helps to find something useful. I was thinking adding a second 5970 radeon card.

Assing a second card all though helps with game (marginally) as far as streaming I'm not sure you will see a drastic increase in video.
The greatest increase in speed is done with memory and keeping your system clean and files defragged.
I think what you have already decided is a great system. :D

With a budget that high, you may want to consider an SSD as your Main drive for your OS and Programs, and then use the hard drive for storage of pictures, music, video, documents, etc.

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820233107 As you can see, they are very expensive, but very fast, so something like that. you may also need a 3.5" to 2.5" bracket adapter as well.
