That would work just fine.

How much are you getting the 212+ though? Dont go for it unless its $35 or under.

Also, to save a few bucks, you could drop down to a 955+5850, performance difference is minimal since you're OCing anyways.

Other than that, you're good.

I second Timop's suggestions.

Other than that I say go for it.
