You probably could find better ram for that price range. You know. Lower latency and higher mhz. I got an 8gb cl8 1600mhz gskill kit for that same price. Also I would recommend the radeon 6850 for gaming. And with that motherboard you could crossfire another 6850 down the road for a good performance boost. The 6850 wont break the bank either, and has low power consumption, so even when crossfire you could probably get by with a 650w psu.
