Yep, thats the ram I'm trying to get. But its out of stock at Newegg. Unfortunately I don't live near a microcenter

As you know, the 2500k is a far better processor than even a QX9770 and the 7970 is not as powerful as SLi 480's.
I know this has probably been said but I figured I'd just throw in my point of view.
Thanks for your advice, but I might go with a 7950, to ease my budget for other hardware.
How much of a difference is the 7950 and the 7970? Is the 7970 worth the extra $100?
