you really should get 2x4GB ram sticks.. unless you really want to run the ram in single channel mode, dual channel would be faster.

anyways, specced response time of 5ms is a bit on the slow side, try getting a 2ms or even 1ms one, not that it matters much but still...

Monitor doesn't really matter when gaming as long as it's 5ms and under and 59Hz-140Hz at 1920x1080p+
