Hi,
I am looking to purchase 3 21.5" Samsung screens and i know what display ports i need etc but i was wondering if my CPU and RAM would support gaming fine.
I am currently running a Core 2 Quad Q9400 at 3.2GHz and 2x2GB 1333MHz DDR3 value RAM with the ASUS HD5870. I was wondering if gaming in high resolutions (e.g. 6060x1200) would put a strain on my RAM at all or if it was just the card that would receive the most pressure. My CPU currently handles all games and tasks fine but my RAM seems as though it could take a strain loading games etc.

If the RAM is a problem i might need to buy new RAM but was wondering if i could get a second opinion.

Couldn't you get the 2 GB version? It would handle games better than the 1 GB version.
