what is the minimum system requirements of 2gb video card without bottlenecking ram or processor

I'm just planning to build my own computer but I'm not sure what to buy if 1gb or 2 gb video card. This is the specs of the system unit I want to build:

Processor: Intel Pentium G3460 3.50ghz dual-core processor lga 1150
Motherboard: Asus B85M-G lga 1150
RAM: 8gb DDR3 (if this is able to handle 2gb video card or i have to increase it)
Power Supply: Corsair 700w (if this is not sufficent for 2gb video card i will replace it)

That's all I want to know i hope you'll answer guys. ^^

  1. That is a pretty low end pc build if you wish to game on it, i'd recommend at least an i5 and a better motherboard everything else is fine. Although 700w is a bit overkill unless you want to have a really beefy graphics card as corsair are reliable. Perhaps you'll do fine with a 500 or 650w psu 80+ certified of course.
  2. thanks for fast reply ^^ well i also willing to spend money on i5 processor but do you think it can run a 2gb video card such as AMD Radeon HD 7800 series or 7700 series or I have to increase the 8gb ram also ?

    7870 may be a good match for you, 8 gb ram is still the minimum for overall good system performance. So you'll be fine, and as it's a pc you can drop in another stick of ram whenever you feel it needs the extra memory.
