Opinion wanted on a potential gaming rig.

I put together this rig keeping in mind aesthetics and performance and I need some opinions on whether some parts are a good option or not. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/gMm4Jx

Also, how do I update the motherboard.

Yeah I checked out some motherboard with the newer chipsets and they're 230-300 dollars O_O, That's ridiculous. I just checked the compatibility on the website and my cpu was listed. That means my cpu is fine right ?

The ones that are compatible with my build with chipset 990fx were around that range. If I may ask another question, is there that much of a difference in 1600 ram and 1866. The CAS latency on the 1600 is 7, doesn't that mean it's a lot faster ?
