By value I meant worth your money or not, and as a gamer, I find little worth in the extra $100 for the i7 2600k. Neither sandy bridge CPUs nor dx11 GPUs will bottleneck each other. They complement each other rather well, but you will notice drop in frame rates if you go below i5

RAM will fit with the normal heatsink as well as other certain models. If you can do without the Vengeance, this is a list of RAM kits and their compatibility with the NHD14:
