New Build.

Hi this is what I'm planning to build and wondered if anyone had any suggestions for improvement without spending much more money.

CPU: Core i5-760 intel
MOBO: P7P55D-E PRO asus
Ram: could anyone recommend some 4GB ram for this system i don't know what to choose there are so many types.
HD: Seagate 1tb 7200rpm
Graphics: EVGA gtx 460 1gb or should i go for the HD5850?
And a good case for around $100 is still to be decided so if you can recommended any that would be great!

Thanks.
my budget is around $1300

  3. Heres 2 builds:

    First a build that offers the same performance as your original for much-less, not very upgradable though.

    Core i5 760: $210 http://www.centrecom.com.au/catalog/product_info.php?sort=2a&products_id=47041

    Then a 6850 Crossfire build for a hair over $1300 that should perform quite a bit better than a single 460/5850.
