Well the decision is yours, but like I said 1600 is very good, its the sweet spot. You could oc it but the only difference would be benchmarks, real world you wont see any difference. What brand is your current RAM?

EDIT
And linnemeyerhere's hard drive is a better choice!

I would save up and get 2x8gb sticks then later you can pull the trigger on another matching set and have 32gb. I wish I had done that but I'll just have to suffer with 16gb

Spec's for the 212:

It has a total height of 6.3" so you are going to have to measure the space inside the case, then decide if it will fit.
