Yes, that should work out fine.
Awesome. I just saved myself future 1500$ because of that. I know that computers are a hobby for some people, but I just really cannot possibly understand why some of them spend astronomical amounts of money on upgrading their entire rig so often when in fact they could upgrade 1-2 parts and be done with it. That is IMHO, and tastes can't be discussed, but being a future student in business I had to point that out :P
