Thanks for the help guys.
I was actually somewhat concerned about the Powercolor. Sadly i live in australia, and i can only find one vendor (MSY) that actually offers reasonable prices (im not that tight but i refuse to support companies who have huge profit margins) and they actually have a physical store beating all internet prices i can find (that ship here). the next card up is the HIS 6870 (they dont sell sapphire for some reason) @ $185 so ill most likely go for that, id love the asus but paying $218 for a card i can get for $169 seems stupid, especially when i dont care about noise.
As for the extra RAM and P67 MOBO theyre simply there so when the moneys avaliable i can drop in an i7 2600k, 6970 and new PSU.
Just hanging out for new CPU's and graphics to be released so i can reap the benefits of all that useless old stocks bargain bin pricing haha.
