Those are some areas I was looking at for sure.

The Ram I could drop to 8gb and use my Vengence 1600 (i have a 4x4 kit here) which is probably whats going to happen.

the 32gb I want mostly because 8x4 is the smallet I can go and I plan to WC the ram using 2 x 4 dimm blocks so kinda stuck there.

Motherboards I'm pretty set on I like the features of the 2011 board and the full block they've made for the impact that does the CPU and motherboard all at once.

PSU I am really not set on for sure, I know 1500w is way overkill there so I'll probably check out some other options.
