Why do you need 32GB of memory?

Which Power supply do you intend to use?

Gaming machines require lots of cooling, and preferably full tower cases. Which case do you intend to use?

i intend on using a 600W power supply but dont know if this is enough

this is not 32 GB of memory is 16GB which is maybe still to much, i dont know

the tower im using has these Bays
5,25 inch, extern 3
3,5 inch, intern 4
2,5 inch, intern 1

and these are the dimensions

187 x 488 x 520 mm

i havent actually looked into cooling systems yet but i think theres just a standard cooling system in this rig.

For a straight gaming system, 8GB of RAM is ideal. You could take that money you save on the RAM and put it towards other components.

Get an 8GB kit which consists of 2 4GB modules. This will allow you to take advantage of dual channel mode which offers better performance.

i checked everything again, same mobo and graphics card an cpu but now i took this cooler:Cooler Master Hyper TX3 EVO, and i took 8 GB of ram, this card:Corsair 8 GB DDR3-1600 Kit CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9, and i've got a 600 watt power supply (should i change that?)
i might overclock but then i will probably need a better power supply and better cooler
