No I was just wondering is it better to have 1 8GB rather than 2 4GB sticks

My rig isn't just for Gaming, I also use it for video rendering and 3d Modeling. I like the idea of getting a Skylake but that would mean a more expensive motherboard, more expensive DDR4 Ram and a more expensive processor which all added up will cost a lot more.

Yes its over-clocked to 4.1Ghz and I'm hoping to get a R9 280X or similar card. There are some games which I can change the graphical setting from maximum to minimum and get only 3 fps in difference.

Yes in programs which support all cores, things like rendering and image processing its great and I've over clocked my processor to 4.1ghz and yeah its a octacore but most games run with 1 or two cores with a few at 4. I've got a friend with a GTX 760 and a top of the range i5 from a few years ago and he gets double my frame rate on cpu intensive games such as mmos, ARMA ect.

ive got a gtx 760 which handles all the games i want at at least medium at 60fps but some more cpu intense games really struggle so i want to get an i5 then, but all the i5's need a motherboard update...

i cant hear it over my graphics cards fans put it that way, its almost silent even at full speed. If you did get the 212 i would suggest getting a second fan for so you have an intake and outtake on the heatsink

as in 400fps increase and yeah... i got ripped of for my tv

40 fps is play able but with this reolution streched across 32 inches, whislt im sitting only 3ft away isnt very nice, playable but not very enjoyable, so i just crank the settings down from max to high, i never have to go below medium for a game, The monitor im aiming at is the BenQ GW2450HM LED Monitor, 19201080 4ms response times and 24" for £130 is very good, also a side note, games like GTA IV and Borderlands 2 run a HELL of a lot better when i force it to run at 19201080, i belive there are some downscaleing issues with some games especailly with a fairly low and uncommon reloution

yeah my tv only runs at a native reolution of 1360*768 which on a 32 inch monitor is straining and ugly to look at, the GTX 760 is good and it handles anything from 2013 on max and new games e.g. metro last light and battlefield 4 on max ( with no phsyx ) at 40fps

well I know the 270x can do crossfire but that's only 2 cards and im a fanboy of AMD CPU's yet I like the GPU boost 2.0 and that recording software which barley touches performance, that's what sways me, as well as the GTX 760 hawk looks pretty cool

only problem being that the R9270 even the R9270x is that they are both slower and don't have as good coolers, also the GTX 760(hawk) can do 3 way sli which I will be looking into around summer time
