Honestly I would get 1600 ram if you want the most out of the k series chip 1866 isn't even out of the question. Every benchmark I have seen though suggests that going over 1866 is really just spending extra money at that point. The gains are pretty much nonexistent once you pass 1866.

That's the exact graphics card I have and without going to the 7970 it's the best single core gpu on the market. ...and while not quite as fast as the 7970 it is nvidia so it supports physx without having to do backflips.
I was able to get mine for just 100 us dollars.
(got really lucky on a bidding site)

100 dollars? How? When? Where? Why?

The system I put together for myself - you can check my system specs and see what I have. I can run any game smooth on great graphics. It only cost me 1600.00 at the time of purchase but, as HW prices go i've noticed some of my HW has dropped 30.00 in some places so, all the better for you!
I've found that SLI is overkill in some games I play whereas the MMO's I play regulate how many FPS you are allowed to have while playing the game although your Graphics Card can do way better in benchmarks. WoW caps me at 800 fps, iv'e never seen it go above that, and I've never seen it dip either and I run on Ultra Settings.

1600.00 = 1,222.61 EUR

Irrelevant to most people.

There are online "auction" sites that are more of a hybrid between an auction and a raffle. The bidders pay for each bid, which is how the site owners make their money. (One of the gimmicks used: if there's bidding activity, the site may extend the auction closing time.) The winner gets the product, all other bidders are out some money. (Probably not a huge sum.) In effect, a large number of people put up relatively small sums towards a product. Only one of them receives it.

Feeling lucky?
