  1. I think it looks pretty Solid. 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.
  2. looks good to me and i agree with tenaciousk on this get 8-16 gb ram
  3. Great! I've changed the ram to 8gb and saved 40 quid! I will now order, thanks guys!
