Okay, so you suggest only 8GB, what about SSD? i really want to get it, but 180GB, is it really enough? I'll be having games like BF3, MW3, BO2 (When it comes out) Skyrim GW2 and other new titles. There's no option for secondary ram, so having an external should substitute?
Thanks for your replies.
Edit: i don't mind paying $24 more for a 3570, it's my first real gaming PC, I want to make it nice.
