Alright, I've looked up everything on the list and it does seem to be much better than what I had.
Is there any reason you went down to 8 gb of ram instead of 16? or could I swap that up to a Mushkin 16 gb?
Thanks for your help.
You don't need 16GB of RAM for a gaming rig and that's not the place I would spend money needlessly. Put that money toward upgrading your video card or your SSD.
