  1. Best answer
    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.
  2. i thought you only needed alot of ram for games.
  3. 8GB is good for futureproof and ram is cheap most new pcs come with about 8
  4. oh uh also cause i'm building this computer for my dad who doesnt really wanna spend too much because he won't be using it for that long everyday so would it be possible to use less?

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

    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.
