Memory is where I am currently experienceing an issue. I know it needs Dual channel kits, and they should be right around 1333 Mhz. I plan on running 32 GIG total. This syetem will be used primarly for gameing.

Thank you for your time have a nice day.

8GB is more memory than a gaming pc needs, 16GB is overkill, 32GB is a waste of money as 24GB of it will never be used. Buy a good kit of 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz and you'll be good for any game. - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
