Drop your Ram to 8GB I don't really want to compromise on power because although i didnt mention this i want to somewhat future proof my computer that way in not back in 2-3 years getting an entirely new setup. As for the ram choice I want to experiment with some ram caching/ ram disk set up in the near future. m 0 l Related resources New build bought today last minute advice. - Forum i need a new build please - Forum NEW to this please my build review thanks a lot ! - Forum New PC Build, do you think this is good?
