Upgrading rig - what's the best GPU/CPU I need/my rig can handle/I can afford?

I originally got that RAM to improve the performance of the APU in the HTPC, so I'm thinking of keeping it with the APU for if/whenever I get that system up and running again, but I might move it to the rig I'm updating at least in the short term. Is it worth swapping out the 1333 RAM with the 1866, or since I have 12 GB already (8 of which is 1600) will it even make a difference?

For gaming, doubt you'll even notice. So not worth swapping it in/out in my opinion. I even downclocked my ram recently for OC stability and don't notice anything at all. I think it was from 1866 to 1600 as a matter of fact. Wink
