Nice combo, what all do you do with your rig, or plan to do, gaming, photos, video, CAD, etc, do you multi-task, run multiple programs windows...I ask because in general 8GB of 1600 is generall enough for most folks, but if the a few of the above apply might want to think more DRAM and possibly higher freq
This will be strictly a gaming rig/multitask machine. I love to multibox mmo's and that is the reason i chose the I7 over the I5 as i know generally the I7 is just a waste for gaming. The next game i am looking into playing and have played the beta for is Final Fantasy: ARR. My goal is to run 4 instances of this game at the same time if not more.
My PC technical level = I can build them (as in i can follow instructions and do my homework on what to not do lol) and know what each piece does lol. But when it comes to ram i really do not know how much speed/amount i will need to accomplish my gaming goals i guess.
