  1. One look at i can tell u

    1. No need 8GB for gaming rig
    2. Config looks way too CPU/Mobo/RAM heavy and GPU lite for the $$
    3. If u like CM PSUs i'd hit the Silent Pro series rather than GX : highly regarded by Johnny Guru

    Conclusion: A Trend Toward 3+ Cores

    The average optimal number of CPU cores suggested by the test results is 2.75, showing a clear trend towards at least three CPU cores.The question of whether the CPU or GPU is most important is easily answered. If you don't have a multi-core CPU, then upgrade it. If you have a dual-core CPU at around 3 GHz, then invest your money into a graphics card, as most games are GPU-limited. This is not something that will change with new DirectX 11 games.
