O since i got my phone out is 8gigs good for gaming
August 3, 2013 9:18:14 AM

maybe you should get a lower cpu (maybe not if your not just gaming that needs all the cores and using microsoft)like a FX 4100, or FX 6100 because all you really need is 4-6 cores if your multitasking microsoft apps, get a better psu, stick with 8 GB of ram, and maybe a lower motherboard as well. Im not sure if a GT 610 is enough to play any game.

Yes , 4 isn't enough,You want 8.

This build is the best for your needs. The new Integrated Iris graphics in the Haswell i7 is more powerful than the 610 and would play Arma 2 easily, so get this build it is very good for your needs. It is much better and more powerful and has a elegant looking case with very good parts. So this is a definite buy for the price.
