  5. Best answer
  6. @aznshinobi: is there a way to fit 8gb 1600mhz ram in there? unless there isnt much difference between the 1333 & the 1600.

    also is there a higher quality psu while staying within budget?

    does the 6870 video card from squidoo work? and does it max out my games?
  7. H61 boards only support 1333 anyway, so it doesn't make any difference.
  8. For the games you said, yes the 6870 would max those games out.

    For the PSU, with your budget and needing windows. No the CX430 is fine anyways. It's a solid PSU that'll give you headroom even with the 6870 and i5 3450 on load.

    As for the 1333 vs 1600, there is very little difference. But B75 does support 1600 so if you wanted to you could go for it. You don't need it though.
