Input on upgrading

I'm saving up to upgrade my cpu, MB, RAM and computer case and have selected some stuff here that I think will work together but I would like your input. First of all for the case I need it where it will fit my ATI 4870 graphics card, I believe it's around 10-14 inches long. Also need a MB with usb 3.0. Also I need input as too what speed RAM I would need. I was wondering if the MB's I picked out can handle this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145334

Here is what I like from newegg

    Good choice of CPU, and mobos too. (I have a 2600K + AsRock 4 Extreme mobo and it's great so far)

    Any mid tower will fit a 4870 Radeon, they are not 10 inches much less anywhere near 14 in) I have a 10.5 inch 570 GTX in mine that has 3/4 inches or so of clearance

    I just measured it, yeah it's 9.5 inches. What about my choice of RAM? Would that MB handle it?
  3. anyone? Comment on the RAM
  4. For your RAM, I would not go with your choice for a couple of reasons..

    1) You are seeing only a percentage or two increase with DDR3 2000, so no worth the cost increase.

    2) SB motherboards have been having issues with 1.65V memory and like 1.5V much better :D

    With that said, I would go with these: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-4GBXM
