    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.

    Thanks for the reply i really appreciate it.

    Ok so the ram ill change to 1600MHz but i don't have a huge budget im trying to keep it around 1800 so im gonna keep the case also i want to keep the 680.

    Ok the SSD um i there anything bad about the sandisk one because im on a budget?

    Thanks for the reply.
  3. 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.
