There is no point in upgrading the ram, you won't see any performance gains worth that kind of money.

The gpu upgrade is a good one and a good match for your system.

I would recommend not buying new ram and maybe using that money to upgrade to 6990 instead of 6950. or just go with 6950 and have extra cash!

Thank you for answers. I also checked 6990 but it is around 1000 $ in my country (everything is expensive here :p ) and i cant really say that i'd like to spend 1k on a gfx.

Oke then i am not going to buy a new ram if you really think that it is not going to make a huge difference. I am just going to upgrade my gfx for now and in a few months i can buy one more card for crossfire.

So what do you prefer ?

SAPPHIRE HD 6870 1GB Toxic
SAPPHIRE HD 6950 1GB Vapor-X
SAPPHIRE HD 6950 2GB Vapor-X
