I will probably add more ram in right away or soon in the future depending on how much the price comes out to after power supply.

what are the differences between the regular 7970 the ghz model and the asus matrix platinum? is the matrix platinum just a more overclockable 7970 ghz?

I went with the Maximus because I do plan on overclocking and I heard its more stable and easier to overclock, is this true?

From what I can see it is an overpriced 7970, that will be cooled a little better than the one that I listed but it won't matter because that extra $100 will not warrant the boost in performance. Also the card will get unstable eventually.
