Building a beast computer - Are all these parts compatible?
So I'm going pretty much all-out in building a PC that I use for everything. I'm -relatively- new to having knowledge of PC parts, so bare with me. I still understand a good bit about computers though. Whether it is daily use or gaming, even server hosting for games, I want to get some opinions and answers for the following:
- Are the parts all compatible? (I've checked and they look to be, but I need a more would appreciate a experienced person to help.
- The processor comes with a cpu cooler. Is it really worth using it? And if not, is the one I have selected necessary?
- My estimated power supply requirement is 788w, will a 1000w PSU work for all these parts? I want it to be fully modular, too.
- I am trying to minimize the number of merchants i'm buying from. If I buy only from Amazon and Newegg, can I pay monthly for the parts on either or both? I cannot pay all of this in full at once.

just ignore ron, he posts that garbage setup on every single pc build thread.
for the money youre much better off doing an intel build if youre pushing nvidia hardware. an overclocked 4670k would be plenty for most applications, but for you if you dont want to deal with overclocking just look for a 4770 non k version, that cpu outperforms the amd 9590 5ghz 8 core for $50 less and less than half the power consumption

Umm, you are going to be *hugely* bottlenecked by the CPU. Who in the blue hell tries to push a a pair of GTX 780's with a FX-4xxx? Good lord.
32GB of RAM is an absolute waste. 16GB is more than enough.
Microsoft took hardware accelerated sound of out DirectX years ago, these days, in games, the sound is emulated via software (the CPU handles it), so discrete sound cards are pointless for gaming.
If you're going to drop $3k on a computer, you might as well do an Intel build
