I agree, if you are looking to buy within the next week or so, get the 5850, or 5870 if it is within your budget, otherwise, wait just a week or so more for the GTX 480/GTX 470 as they will be released tonight and will take about a week to hit the shelves. I would wait for the benchmarks and prices for GTX480/470 first if it were me.

as for RAM, go with G.Skill Ripjaw series with cas 7 1600mhz, lost of great reviews and it is what i am going to get very soon to go with my i5 750.

yeah, i would wait for the benchmarks of the 470 and see what the prices are, if they are within budget and the performance is better than the 5850, no reason not to, LOL Good Luck!
