  1. 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
  2. here you go

    -better case
    -lower profile ram
    -better video card
    -ever so slightly better ODD

    -better video card

    Video card is out of stock, any replacement options, or back to what I had?
  4. id wait for some stock. you can always make do with intergrated for now.

    there are other 7870s but they cost 30 dollars more or so
  5. 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.
  6. it has overall better construction, more cabling space, and usb 3
  7. Thanks Big Troll for you input.

    Last chance for others to have some input. Looking to place NCIX order in next few hours.
  8. you are in the states right? if you are canadian, ill do some further tweaking
  9. Yes, I am in US. Does NCIX have any hidden fees for shipping to the US?
  10. no. they dont. they will probably use UPS given its cheaper
