Solved Final thoughts/suggestions before I order Tags: Components Last response: September 24, 2013 9:38 PM in Components Share klunt September 24, 2013 8:39:02 PM http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/klunt/saved/2s26 Finally think I'm ready to start ordering the parts. Just want to get some extra thoughts about the build. Should I be looking to get thermal compound? I could get Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 OC 1000MHZ 3.0GB 5.5GHZ for $289.99 instead... so basically $130+ cheaper. Would I see a big difference between the 2 cards?

And remember, the more VRAM the card has, the more system RAM the OS will set aside for it. The rest of the build looks good. I don't know if the cooler you chose comes with thermal paste or not. It might be best to order some MX-4 just in case. Besides, it's always good to have on hand.
