Agreed with the Antec 620; Antec's are good, and it seems to be reasonably spec'd.

Youre board only holds 8Gig of RAM in 2 slots, you have 4Gig, in 2x2Gig i'm betting. For 37 euros, theres nothing there worth your time.

You can get this and upgrade to another 4gb 1600 later if you will. They will work together as the 1600 will just be downclocked to match the other stick.

4GB Corsair Vengeance LP Black DDR3-1600 DIMM CL9 Single - Hardware,

Thank God for Google translate in Chrome. That site isn't the best site for organization.

Corrosive wants to future proof you if you ever want another stick at 1600, you can use the full speed.

You just pop it in and lock it down with the lever. It's not any harder than that.

The stock heatsink will have thermal grease already applied.
