They should be compatible. How much RAM do you have (Link doesn't work for me) and I'd recommend getting a Radeon R9 280x over a GTX 770. It has 3gb VRAM and will max all games at 1080p

What do you mean when you say link didn't work for you?

It says 2*8 up top but I meant to put 2*4

Oh ok because 16gb would be a waste of money. I would recommend getting a R9 280X over a 770 because they both perform about the same, but the 280x has more VRAM so VRAM-hungry games will be able to run at max settings
