16 GB of Corsair Vengeance Ram at 1600mhz
Asus Sabortooth 990fx Motherboard
EVGA 2gb 560 Graphics card

No, you have an AMD motherboard. You need to get an intel capable mobo first.

Life's right. You'll have to go Intel based with the motherboard and the i7 cpu chip.
6 core Intel cpu chips. You want more cores you're going to have to step up to the Xeon line. Warm up the VISA card cause those are outragous. Serveral thousand dollars
