Get whichever RAM is cheaper. (they both are overpriced) Get 8gb

Get whatever motherboard is cheaper. (actually scrap them both and get a cheaper board)

Use this saved money to get an hd7950.

Hey! Thanks for the reply.
I am not planning to have really good graphics though. I think the HD7950 is too expensive. Also, I am planning to get a windowed case, so I'd like to have a good looking RAM and Motherboard.
