RAM - 32GB

I'm just wondering what my options are? I'm looking on amazon and this seems to be the most affordable for an 8 core. Would it be compatible with my current set up?

AMD FX 8350 Black Edition "Vishera" CPU (8 Core, AM3+, Clock 4.0 GHz, Turbo 4.2 GHz, 8 MB L3 Cache, 125 W)
Not at all. You'd need a new motherboard with the AM3+ socket. Your current motherboard has an LG1150 (Intel) socket.
