  3. got a evga geforce gtx 660 2gb gddr5 bought it on october last year
  4. Ok you're good.

    As long as you have a 1920 x 1080 monitor. :)

    oh yeah 16gb is overkill for gaming but if you don't really care hey. 8gb more RAM!
  5. i use a 1920x1080 monitor for gaming and a 1440x900 monitor to browse the web while gaming, i'm considering the 16 gb because i use software like solidworks and matlab so i feel o dont want to keep short
  6. Okay, you know what you are doing! :)
  7. thank you, then i'll go with that build, hopefully it last some years lol
