  1. No,it's a great build :)
  2. Maybe in certain high-end video programs, or trying to run a dozen VMs, or other highly specialized application, but in general use, gaming, most anything else, not at all.
  3. Yeah no, thats fine. If you have the extra money tho, I would get DDR3-1600.
  4. If you're gaming and browsing the web, you'll be fine.

    If you're doing any video authoring or heavy-duty Photoshop'ing under Windows 7, you could do with another couple of gigs.

    I would sweat Max1s's suggestion that you move to DDR3-1600; you probably wouldn't notice the difference between 1333 and 1600. Just go with what's cheapest and what works at 1.5v DRAM voltage.
