Gaming. the 12gb ram is for future proofing.

I would hold off the exstra RAM untill you actually need it

that monitor is only 60hz and only 1080p so you're not getting much out of those graphics cards

i agree with lord smith that mobo is overkill and just no worth it

also i see r290 about 100 dollars cheaper for similar performance

I won't be upgrading anything for quite a while. I expect asus to have a long durability ?

The mobo is a bit overkill imo

Personally I'd get 2 x 8GB ram sticks for 20$ more

Yeah. Do you suggest any changes ?

Any 130$-200$ Z97 motherboard will perform as well as the HERO.

The HERO is full of extra widgets and accessories that you probably won't use.

What do you recommend me ?

I thought about it and you said you were looking for durability so I came up with this

The ASUS SABERTOOTH Z97 MARK II. It has a 5 year warranty, compared to VII HERO which has a 3 year warranty.

You can research the mobo yourself, I advise you get a 5 year warranty if you're not gonna upgrade in a while and are looking for durability/longetivity
