Not a bad deal really. I would ditch the case and RAM though. Go for a more realistic mid tower, and get 1600MHz RAM.

I've always had space problems so I want a full tower and could you get me a link for ram? Also you think the Psu will be ok?

What case do you recommend pp?

What kind of space problems? I have double the amount of stuff crammed in a tiny temp Raidmax Scorpio right now. Single GPU with a couple HDDs should be no issue.

I recommend something quality you like. Most people don't really understand how large full towers are.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL - Newegg.com

I know it's not much cheaper, but no point in spending money on RAM you can't utilize unless you plan to switch to Intel anytime soon.

Basically everything I just said. I think the PSU will be fine.

No. The drivers don't play nice at all when both types of cards are installed in the same machine.
