Do you plan on overclocking? If so there can be some changes to your CPU, mobo and cooler to make better use of the overclocking abilities, but anyway swith the 1x8GB of ram. Your better off getting dual channel memory (2x4Gb). Its twice the speed if you think about it because there's 2 routes for info to travel through apposed to one and its the same price. Also go with a 750 TI GPU. Dont get a 600 generation GPU. Youll be way far behind when the 800 series comes out. Its also gonna be around the same price, maybe a couple bucks cheaper with the same or better performance depending on what one you get. Finally a IPS monitor would be better. It offers a much better picture image and experience overall.
