Should OC well, nice case to work with tons of room, i want to push AMD more, which is why i chose AMD components, you're getting better bang for buck with that combo.

Should work well for most resolutions unless you've got a huge moniter.
what can i expect to run with this build? How will it handel Oblivion and games liek FSX?
