  1. IIRC FFXIV favours red camp more and i would look at the HD 5850 as an awesome buy actually hehe
  2. get a 5870, the 480 is a space heater.

    switch RAM brands, OCZ hasnt been doing so well lately. try gskill, mushkin, corsair.

    get a corsair PSU, roughly the same price AR, better efficiency and brand, look at the hx850 or tx850.

    you can save a lot by building yourself.

    otherwise, nice build. :)
