You only need 8gb of RAM, so get 2 4gig sticks and save the money to spend elsware. Get a better case like the Thermaltake or an Antec. And a better PSU like Corsair, Seasonic, and XFX.

Idk if the CPU will bottleneck the GPU or not though, so double check that.

For $97.00 more, moves you to Top tier for gaming. Understand you have strict budget, but wanted to show you just...in...case.
