Oh sorry, I neglected to mention that this is a gradual upgrade system. I'm gonna throw in another 6870, then upgrade to an i5 2500k/IVB processor down the line. m 0 l ohhgourami March 19, 2012 11:58:16 PM In that case, the 2120 is fine. As for your ram, make sure it will fit below your future aftermarket CPU cooler too. m 0 l ValiantZX March 20, 2012 12:19:57 AM ohhgourami said:In that case, the 2120 is fine.

Would it be worth it to get the low profile RAM? m 0 l ohhgourami March 20, 2012 3:29:48 AM If you ever want something like a Noctua NH-D14 it is. Only certain rams fit with heatsinks like that. m 0 l traumaiv March 20, 2012 3:38:18 AM http://pcpartpicker.com/p/5SSh m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
