I think I would scrap that whole build. The Phenom II 965 is a better CPU than the FX-4100, the Radeon 6850 is a better low end video card than the GTX 550TI, and nobody should purchase anything made by Raidmax. And that RAM is triple channel meant for Intel X58 systems - it wont work in this config.

Try this instead:

A 1x8 RAM kit? Why not 2x4? But a great build.

If I replace the video card with this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Will It Still Work?
