Hey guys

I am upgrading my computer, the components I will be using from my current build are:

-lancool PC k62 case
-22" 1080p monitor
-mouse and keyboard
-2TB WD Green + 1TB WD Black
-Corsair A70 CPU cooler (except I'm concerned it might not fit)

Here's what I want to build:

NCIX.com - Buy NCIX Gaming Bundle Deal ASUS P8P67 Pro B3 SLI Motherboard & Intel Core i5 2500K Unlocked Processor - Bundle Deals - 2500K-p8p67proB3 - in Canada

NCIX.com - Buy G.SKILL Ripjaws X F3-12800CL9D-4GBXL 4GB 2X2GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 Memory - G.Skill - F3-12800CL9D-4GBXL - in Canada

NCIX.com - Buy MSI GeForce GTX 570 OC Fermi 786MHZ 1280MB 4.2GHZ GDDR5 2XDVI Mini-HDMI PCI-E DirectX 11 Video Card - MSI/MicroStar - N570GTX-M2D12D5/OC - in Canada

I just wanted some imput before I buy, and also I know almost nothing about "good RAM"... which brands are good, etc. I just put that one in because it looked decent, but maybe there's a better one? I just want something stable and fast, 4GB.

I will do some overclocking, will be used for gaming and office work. Main thing is that I want to play BF3 with decent FPS. buying from NCIX this week or next week at latest.

Everything looks fine but I'm a fan of the corsair offerings from Corsair.. like their Vengeance line etc.
