I want to add some stuff to it so when Guild wars 2 comes out, i can run it on Max graphics settings, so i need your help guys.

First, I want to buy new ram, I want to upgrade to 12g, I wanted to know what would be the best, 1600 mhz ? 1333 ? I'll show some things from neweggs, but you can also recomend someother objects

So What would be better between those 2, and will my motherboard support it ?

I also want to buy a 120 or 128 gigs SSD, But i don't know wich one would be better and if my motherboard would support either one :

So that's pretty much it, Can my computer supports those things ? Are they the best i can get ? What would you recommend ?

Also, If i want to play a game like guild wars 2, should i upgrade the videocard or it should be able to run it ?

thanks guys !

What is your cooler?

U must be sure that your cooler will not obstruct the space over the RAM.

Thanks for that answer, yeah there is enough room for the ram, The powersupply is nowhere near from being over the ram clips.

Right, but I meant the cooler, when there is the fan on both sides, it rarely fits : )

Anyway, The fan is not in the way (i can see it trought my case (window))

And to answer my own questions, i googled a lot here is what i came to :

I bought the ram with cas latency of 7 and 1333 mhz because my actual processor does not detect 1600 mhz, i would have ended downgrading it...

And for the SSD, I bought the intel 320 series, because the motherboard use a marvell controler wich Restrict the Sata 3, Making the psi to 8x and lowering the overall speed also, So i went with the intel since it has a SATA II

U can use RAM with XMP profile and use 1600MHz RAM just fine.
