Get 1333 speed ram probably 2 sticks 4GB each video card you dont need it it has integrated video on the motherboard for web surfing and video its sufficient.

8GB is good for futureproof and ram is cheap most new pcs come with about 8

Games won't often use more than 3-4Gb. 8Gb will leave you with plenty of room for he future.

If it is just for general use like internet, email, word, etc. Then you could easily get away with 4Gb. (2x 2Gb sticks). I would also say that the speed won't matter too much either. 1333MHz like esco_sid said.
