  1. Get a 6870 instead. Will work better. You didn't put the memory timings in there. Hope you got the right ones.
  2. memory: Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C​9B 8GB 1600Mhz CL9 DDR3 Vengeance Memory Module Kit

    ok bro il get 6870.. lol theres so many versions so i went with the cheapest since i am on a budget.

    also it says its kinda big. should fit in a midtower?

    so i guess everything is compatible and thanks man. ordering this nextweek :D
  3. WD Blue HDD's not known for there speed.

    Heatsink ok, but Hyper 212 Evo would be a lot better.

    +1 ATI 6870

    Memory will be fine.
  4. I agree, 8GB RAM is a better choice.

    6870 is a stronger video card at not a much more substantial price.

    I have that same hard drive, I don't have a problem with it. Sure it doesn't match the speeds of an SSD, (no HDD can) but you won't have any trouble with its speed. Actually, my secondary Seagate 2TB drive thats SATA II doesn't seem any slower than my SATA III Caviar Blue. go figure.
  5. over budget either 8gb ram or ati 8750. or i can keep the normal 8750 and get 8gb ram

    is their much difference in the video cards?
  6. also i dont want to sure the graphics card aint way to powerful for processor or mobo. stupid Q sorry im justa begginner
