Overkill RAM detected. 1600MHz is enough for most people, any more than that is just not worth it.

Get a 670 for like $100 less, it will perform only 10-15% worse than the 680. Also get one from Gigabyte, MSI or Asus as they have awesome coolers.

You may also want an SSD from OCZ(Vertex 4) or Crucial(M4)

If you have a huge budget, I seriously suggest the NZXT Switch 810 for a case. Awesome airflow, and cable management.

If youre going to keep the 680, atleast get one from Gigabyte, MSI or Asus as they have better coolers. They OC as well and most of them already come OCed.

Im not sure about the Sandisk, I did say you may want one from the mentioned brands. From what I know, the Vertex 4 and M4 are reliable and good, just havent read anything about Sandisk ones, I guess.
