Oc'ed it has tons of head room but stock not so much as say a 8350, that being said it is not a slouch and i'm was just saying that the 970 is a good fit with it. You should have no trouble with it and it will generate way less heat then a 8350.

I didn't find it offensive, the statement had me confused. I don't plan on overclocking though, not even 0.1GHz. I spent too much on it (just under 100) to risk it frying... ^^; But comparing a Core 2 Duo to it, that one definitely IS a slouch in comparison to the 6300 xD

Yeah I understand, I just didn't want you to suddenly think you needed to spend like 800 on a old card lol.

Well, if it supplied unlimited VRAM and had no TDP, maybe I would xD But the most I'm comfortable spending on one is no more than 340, but 360 is my highest. And I see that most 970s are around 310 - 330, at least on PCPartPicker's lists.

That is nice card many of my friends have that one. Also I thought you were someone else who had found a 670 for 800 and was going to buy that so I was warning you so you can ignore my comment about it above (wrong thread). Also I agree with AddRam if you get a 970 you really should have at least a 700-800w PSU. My current setup can pull 640w from the wall at load. So you would be close.

Don't bother. You ideally should always buy RAM in kits, and 8GB is more than enough for gaming. That money could go towards something else you really need, only upgrade from 8GB to 16Gb when you're bored and have nothing left to upgrade.

My RAM came in a two stick kit, 4 gigs a piece. If I shouldn't get more now, what was that one guy saying about:

Having more memory also helps the video card, I would seriously consider adding another set of Gskill 2 x 4 GB, the same exact set you have now.
I mean, it makes sense that it helps overall, but I'm not certain about RAM doing any high end graphical work... Or does it actually help out somewhat? (No offense is meant to anyone, I just need to get my facts straight so I'm on the same page)

I believe you'd have to have windows 7 pro and 32gb of ram before it starts to happen :/
