Why the 3 sticks of RAM?

The Corsair Builder Series aren't very good.

Other than that, it seems fine.

You can run either two sticks or four, both will result in being dual channel. If he ran three sticks then it would run in single channel.

OP, what is your budget?

My budget is around 1K im $94 over, but no biggy

ew your processor choice is horrible.

get that instead, it's only a $20.00 increase and is alot better.

this case is much better than the one you chose and is $20.00 cheaper.

your ram is over priced, and there is better and faster ram out there, I would go with PNY instead, it's clocked higher, and I personally have this ram and it's overclocked and works flawlessly. and it is $50.00 cheaper

I would use this motherboard instead, asrock is really good, i currently have this same board. great price and it's just as good if not better than the Asus you posted. and it is $20.00 cheaper.

your power supply isn't very strong, I have that same videocard but the TI version, my computer kept shutting off with a 600W power supply so I would suggest getting a bigger one.

I'm sure you will be happier with the i5 3570k and with the as rock motherboard, they have very detailed instructions on what goes where
Yup. ASrock and ASUS are making awesome MOBO and the i5-3570k is awesome for gamming
