More about nice enough
  1. if you want to overclock, id get this

    if you would trade overclocking for a much more powerful video card, id get this. you roughly get double the GPU performance
  2. And dump the sound card, not needed. Spend the money on a better GPU.
  3. Stuff here in Malaysia is pretty expensive, that's why I tried to keep it low as possible, and there's a few stuff I can't get here, cause of they're not well known in Malaysia.
