    That Crosshair might not run with that RAM!!! It's too fast for AMD I believe but I'll let someone else Chime in. I only GPU for Team Red...

    I'll say that for one, Get the Mars Card...

    Hey there, you've got a great looking build hardware wise your RAM should work no problems. As you've elected to buy a kit with 2 sticks of RAM, you should be able to easily hit 2400MHz. The 8350's do have a pretty good IMC, if you're into Overclocking, you may even get higher on the Memory, but that depends on just how good the CPU's IMC is

    If you're looking for a ROG card, you could also get a Matrix 290X rather than the 280X version. How many cards are you planning on running? just one, your 750W PSU should be fine, but, if you plan on going more than one card, you're gonna need more juice

    For a single card I would go with the Poseidon 780, if you are going to watercool it of course; If not I would not buy that card but get a Matrix 290X or 780Ti or regular 780.

    The 760 Mars is a good card if you want two GPUs but don't have much room. Buying two normal 760s and running SLI will give better performance and is cheaper....but I would get an 850w PSU for SLI...

    760 Mars card beats 780 Poseidon in most benchmarks including Bioshock, Last Light and Battlefield 4. Google it.

    You can't find the Matrix 280x anymore, and the new matrixes haven't gone on the market yet.

    Posideon 780.

    The new Matrixes must be on the market, since a couple of Members own them.

    Depends on your budget and performance needs.

    In terms of performance (fastest to 'slowest'):

    MARS 760
    Matrix 780 Ti/R9 290X
    Poseidon 780
    Matrix R9 280X
    <new announced this week>
