I'm hoping for gaming and this was slightly over budget for me, was it a bad idea to get this config?
More abouthave made mistake
i would lower the cpu and get better graphics if you're after gaming
Looks pretty decent. Sure, the RAM isn't as fast as you'd normally want, but the difference isn't huge. The graphics card is plenty powerful, and with that CPU you can upgrade your graphics card later without being held back by the CPU.
EVENTUALLY I'm hoping to get a different gpu I was told it would be easier to get a better cpu now then upgrade the gpu later, rather than the other way around and then maybe a small overclock on the cpu will upgrade the RAM too this was just untill I can get some proper decent stuff like vengance
