^ Well if you sole purpose of building a PC is gaming, then you would need a better graphics card...And also 4GB of RAM would suffice...So with the money saved there, put it on the graphics card...

But for the game i want to run massive of, 8gb is what i need.

How much difference will the graphic card make on the laginess of my computer and how many of a certain game i can possibly run?

^ Which game are you talking about??
Even the most graphic intensive games dont utilize anything above 4GB fully...
But a faster graphics card, can make a lot of difference...

im talking about diablo 2, i want to be able to run 130+ copies of it.

i really dont understand any computer components so is it possible for you guys to kind of put it in basic language for me? like wut graphic card does and stuff like that because i thought the main things that control how much things i can run is ram and the core

^ 130+ copies ?? Well then maybe 8GB is fine...
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...

And as for the components, the graphics card is the one that processes most of the visual aspect of the game. So if you want to run the game nice and smooth, then you would need a powerful card...

Okay, so can you tell me exactly what i need to buy then to be able to do what i want to do? (my bro can set it up for me, but hes not sure about the devices to get).

My main goal is to have a super fast comp that can run massive amounts of diablo 2 and other things that will take up mem and cpu etc.
