    Hope you don't mind bud but I've taken the liberty of moving your hardware questions to the PC Hardware forum where they might receive a little more of the proper attention

    Welcome to the forums by the way

    What is your total budget???

    Might be an idea to buy a pre-built system.

    The GTX 560 is not a bad Graphics card and it's at a reasonable price as well, against the other type of GFX cards that is a lot more expensive !

    I'd say that a 560Ti is still a very good card. You can usually get one off eBay for around £100.

    I'd assume that the ram clock speed determines how fast data can be loaded from the hard drive.

    Really? I think it was on TH that showed that ATI cards came into their own on the higher end at high resolutions.

    ^^ check out the 3dmark 13 scores between me and Malfunction, we both have near enough the same physics scores but my 7850 scores nearly 1400 points higher for graphics score, and uses 40w less power.
