looks ok, but why the 'additional ram'? the first 8 gig is more than enough. I and most others run 4gig. and that's more than enough.

The additional RAM was added because this computer is intended for running a minecraft server, while running games like crysis 2, and others. Also, I have decided to switch the graphics card listed previously with the Newegg.com - MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone OC GeForce GTX 550 Ti &#40;Fermi&#41; 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card will it still all be compatible?
