  1. Yep, but get 2x4 RAM kit instead. So you can use dual channel memory.

    The RAM (Memory) that you selected is 1 x 8GB. its a single 8GB stick. Its better to have two identical 4GB sticks, that will add up to 8GB instead. the added benefit? dual channel bandwidth

    edit: didn't see that it was 1x8gb. Get 2x4 for sure and preferably 1600mhz.


    *****Why is 1x8gb worse then 2x4gb (?????)
