Ive found the gaming rig I want to get but im still stuck on whether to pay the extra $80 or so for a 8GB DDR 1600MHz ram unit or just keep the 1333MHz. The computer is strictly gaming, with the minor editing for videos and some photoshop. But no 3d rendering or other applications. Will the 1333MHz unit do just fine playing games like Crysis 2 and other powerful games?
