    Looking for a cheapish upgrade and have selected the following:

    FX 6300
    Hyper 212 evo
    M5A97 EVO R2
    MSI R9 270
    G-Skill 8GB Ripjaws X DDR3 2133 Dual Kit

    Is it worth getting the 2133 RAM over 1600? it's a fair bit more expensive if it makes no difference in games.

    This will all be powered by a 500W dual 12V rail PSU. 17A on one rail, 18A on the other. Hopefully should be good enough.

    What make is the PSU?

    Slight re mod, went for the Gigabyte motherboard and 2400mhz as the price difference is minimal:

    It's an Antec Phantom. Old but hardly used.

    I've added up a total of £370 for what I listed. Have no Interest in dual graphics cards so the 990x boards seems like overkill for my needs.
