    Need Help building a pc :)

    This is the link to the pc i want to build
    but i want to change up a few things because about two parts dont have amazon prime. so the things im wondering if i can replace are the RAM and the Graphics card, instead of the msi 270x im wondering if i can use the sapphire 270x http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-versi...ds=MSI+R9+270X instead of the msi one? About the ram the video suggests G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1866 , am i able to use G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 instead ? and is it better? for 5 bucks more it would not hurt getting that if its better and compatible . Last question but not really important can anyone of you experts suggest a better case something sexy and maybe better for cable management? thank you for any help you can give

    Okay one thing first, you know how to edit posts, so don't spam your way up the forum ranks.

    OT: To answer all of your questions, yes, that Graphics card is compatible and that RAM is compatible, but from a gaming POV the frequency of RAM doesn't really make a difference. For the case I'd purchase a Fractal Design Define R4, it's the case I currently own and it's the best I've ever used, I can't recommend it highly enough. On the topic of Graphics cards, all graphics cards can be switched out and replaced by any other provided it has a PCI connector.

    Corsair is always a good choice, try going for some of their LP RAM, it's usually cheaper thanks to it not having a large heatsink.

    Cases will always come with fans pre-installed but if you want to go with outside sourced fans then get Corsair AF120's.
