I meant to change the memory to something with a lower profile than the high fins on that one.

Does anyone have a suggestion on a better memory choice?

Also, the video card situation... I would like to stay around $200. There were 2 7850s by Sapphire, one with 1 GB OCd and one with 2 GB, not OCd.

Which would be the better choice. Or can I get better performance elsewhere

Thanks for the reply, I can wait if it is worth it.

What makes your case choice superior. I don't really know much about cases.
