    If it was me I would look into these RAM: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=MY-017-SA and comparing the gpu's to get the best gpu for the money spent.
    And also look into an SSD (intel, crucial and samsung make some great ones) because it will boost the speed of your pc quite a bit.

    Kepler cards worth the extra

    Side note. IDE get better heat sink cuz that an over clocking CPU So if ur not gonna overclock don't get the k variant. But I u wana give it a go get a beefier tower air cooler. Like a noctua or phantek one


    Also 1333 ram is abit slow considering how cheap DDR 3 is now samsungs 22nn Eco ram is cheap and can go twice as fast as that

    Although RAM is relatively cheap at the moment, do you really need 16GB? If it's just gaming then 8GB should be sufficient. Another question: Do you intend on overclocking your CPU at all? If so, buying an aftermarket CPU cooler is highly advisable.
    I spent half my money on gambling, alcohol, and wild women. The other half I wasted.

    I've just updated my machine to: i5 3570k, arctic i30 cooler(awesome both if you want to OC or not), 8 gb samsung ram, gigabyte 7870 OC gpu, asus P8z77 M-Pro, samsung 256 GB SSD, corsair 750W TX

    Works awesome

    I really did not want to get involved in this but i cant help myself...

    Louis is right on the RAM,16GB for gaming is just silly. 8GB is fine and you could get some 1600MHz for a good price. I also agree on the Cooler,OEM air coolers are not great even when CPU is at stock speeds,I use a noctua atm and it is soooo quiet and keeps my 5 core 4.2GHz @ 38c under full load. SSD is a good idea if boot times are an issue and GX cards....Well the great debate lol. If you are just casual gaming do you need to go mad?? You run an AMD 5XXX ATM and seem to play ok,Either the 570 or 660 would be a huge jump from what you have now. Dont get suckered into needing the "best" bits. Do some reading online and see what is best suited for you..
