My Intel i7, 4875T Build, Need Help with Motherboard and Ram.

Hi all. So I have a i7 4875T cpu, was pulled from an Alienware Alpha. I'm considering using it for a build. Been putting together a list on Newegg. Wanted to check here before ordering the parts. Specifically the motherboard compatibility and type/speed of ram (not sure if I can use DDR4) Last, I have also considered doing a Ryzen 5 1400 build. Any idea how this build would compare? I'm using the PC for Gaming only. Wow Legion, Overwatch, Guild Wars 2, Minecraft, and Simple Planes.


Here is the list, please let me know thoughts, and if ok.

    This motherboard is not compatible with that processor nor DDR3 memory. What you need is a socket 1150 motherboard, any of these in this small list will do good...
