Im worried the ram may be a bit slow and leave no room for overclocking in the future. I have went over many graphics cards and the 5870 seems to have the best reviews so far. Also i plan to do eyefinity and jump my ram to 24gb which is the reason i have went with the 1200w power supply though it may be overkill. Any thoughts or suggestions im open to please be critical as possible. Haven't chosen an optical drive as of yet may go blu-ray or stick to a good ole DVD/CD burner drive. :P :P Thanks in advance
