If i were you i would just go with 8gigs of RAM 16 is probably a little overkill for gaming. (if you dont mind spending the money then go for it) other then that. Looks like you have the right idea. jopo January 29, 2013 4:50:18 PM looks good to me and i agree with tenaciousk on this get 8-16 gb ram Can't find your answer ? Ask !
