  1. Yeah, that was a typo. I'm looking at 16GB. I'm a student taking a parallel programming course so the extra threads would help me in development and practical application benchmarks. I already have one GTX 560 so I thought just getting another would be easier than trying to sell it. I'm definitely sticking with NVidia. I had an ATI card and it just doesn't play nice with Linux at all. I'll take a look at those brands for a PSU, even though they're a bit more expensive. On the cooler side: To be honest I've always been afraid of watercooling, I've never installed a watercooling system and wouldn't wanna mess it up, plus my budget is getting a bit tight here at the end. I've read pretty decent reviews of the GTX 560 in SLI, and as I mentioned earlier I've already got one. Unfortunately I live in South Africa so shipping is gonna be a bit of a hassle. I won't be OC'ing the CPU right off the bat, wanna see how my new baby does on her own first, lol. Thanks for your input guys, I really appreciate it
