  1. its over kill if you are using it for email
  2. Yeah, what are your uses for this?

    It looks good for a standard i7 build, except for the 12GB RAM. If you're only using this for gaming, you'll never come close to needing that much; 6 will work fine. If you're trying to run billions of computations on a Matlab-style application, that's another story.

    6GB is more than enough for almost all tasks/games.
    Other specs are great though.
  4. Primary use will be games but I also do software development so the extra memory would be useful for running visual studio.
  5. It's good if you seriously have that much money to waste.... but I would recommend 4-8GB of RAM, not 12!
  6. So, what about the memory I selected? If I go with 6G should I opt for a faster memory then the 1333?

    You should definitely go for 1600 if you have the money, but if you're not going to overclock it then don't bother. Get a good processor and a fast graphics card and you're ready to go.
  8. Best answer
    Get a 6GB with a Cas Latency of 7 or 8, and a speed of 1600MHz. You'll be spending your money better than if you buy the Cas 9 set.
