Little more information: I want to upgrade my video card and RAM (Any other thing if suggestions convince me it's needed). I would like physx, looks really nice (mostly want it for SC2). I have an old GeForce 8600GTS but was not able to do the AMD Physx hybrid setup posted around the web. I would like to add a second monitor to play with twitch and do other stuff while I play windowed.
I was also thinking of replacing the CPU Cooler with a watercooling solution, but I'm not sure were to go on that. If someone could post something I would really appriciate it. I have read around water cooling but I don't want to do anything very custom or advanced, just practical and beneficial if...only if it would really help. The cooling only because I live in Puerto Rico and it gets really hot, even during the night.
Thats a good video card, if you are set on water cooling than that ram should be fine. If your not too comfortable attempting water cooling, an after market air cooler will help a lot but the gskill ripjaws have such a large heat spreader that it interferes with most CPU coolers. Look for ram with a lower profile spreader and you should be fine.
