I've had good experiences with Sapphire and HIS ATI cards. I really don't know how you'd eat up 4gb of ram playing a game. Even running the latest games with many programs in the background I only end up utilizing 2.8 to 3gb. I keep my W7 memory usage to a minimum by removing a lot of the clutter that runs in the background though. $60 for a 212+ is a bit steep. You can usually find similar coolers (with direct heat pipe contact) for ~$30-40. Where do you plan on buying your hardware? newegg.ca? ncix? Local shop?
