funny how the OP's budget is 2500 CDN and he keeps saying to save money..and i thought money wouldnt be a concern lol...
1600 vs 2000 ram the performance is about the same because of the timings, sometimes 1600>2000
only reason I said that is why spend an extra 50 bux to barely get
a increase of a degree. I've already said I'm going to get the megahelem just need an extra set of clips. And really
why not save money that 50 bux could go into buying a ssd or another gpu
