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!

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
