Very nice video card, don't listen if anybody tells you to get the one by eVGA. Both have the exact same specs but the one by leadtek has a MUCH better cooler. Great for overclocking.

OCZ el platinum rev2's are pretty cheap right now and can overclock very good (around 185 or so?)

oh btw, you might want to get yourself an OCZ modstream/powerstream 520W instead

or you can go for the twinMOS

they can overclock very good if you give it enough voltage (which can be done with the dfi board)

they are very good ram for only $86 or so (for a gig)
