I'd consider G.Skill Ripjaws X
They're all 8GB 1600MHz / 8-8-8-24, 1.5v, and quality RAM companies.
+1 on upgrading the GPU.
Although you'll only see noticeable improvement from a GTX 560Ti 448 Core or HD 6970 (or higher).
Not sure if you're willing to drop ~$300-$350 on a new GPU.
Not sure what you mean by "CAS 7" but really 7-8-8-24...that's what it says in the details, could you explain a little more? And the Corsair RAM is on sale for the same price as the G.Skill ones which have CAS 8 (not 100% sure but isn't lower better?)
GPU - Yeah don't have 300-350 for a new one but if I did upgrade was thinking crossfire with another 6870, or are you saying that wouldn't be that much of an increase? I thought crossfire 2 cards was actually pretty good?
I have never tried over clocking and am a little nervous about how to do it, don't want to break anything :\ lol....but sounds like CPU is good enough to not replace?
