How much ram do i really need
Im playing minecraft, sometimes roblox and i do HIGH core video editing..... How much ram do i need. Sorry, my question mark wont work. Also, is the i7-4770 a decent CPU
Decent ? It's very good !
If you want , you can get a cheaper i7-3770 and get more RAM.
Here's a Comparison
They are both very good CPUs.
" How much RAM your editing computer an use is going to depend on
1/ the operating system .....you should be using a 64 bit OS
The editing program you will be using . Some of these are 64 bit , but older editions will not be and they cant use much RAM . If you are sure the program is 64 bit then as mauch as you can afford , otherwise 2 x4 gig is more than you ca ever use "
for the RAM part
Hello, thank you for replying very quickly,
Yes, i would like to stay with the i7-4770 because its VERY cheap on microcenter and they don't sell the i7-3770 their. please try to find me a good motherboard too please, it needs to be a 1150 socket and under $100 us dollars. And my budget is under $700 us dollars.

any intel based MOBO is a good option as far as have a good chipset and dual mem chanel support
also with that CPU you cant do OC, maybe could be weak in OC performance
