Hi bolto90. No it's not worth it. Do not pay 700 dollars for that 4000 RAM.

Can I ask what is your system gonna be used for?

That PSU for that GPU and your CPU is not recommended. A good brand and model PSU should be used here.

thanks for the advice, it a mixed-use system I do a lot of virtualisation with VMware and also GNS3 and play games occasionally but just generally want a powerhouse system which I shouldn't need to change for at least the next 3-4 years.
