RAM - 16GB DDR3? Only 8GB? Do I need more than 1600mhz clock speed? (Where do the diminishing returns start is basically my question) PSU/Case/Cooling - I was looking at this bad boy www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119260 but mostly because it has a handle and sometimes I do PC game not at my house.
Am I missing anything else? I hear Gunnar Optics are extremely important for interpreting my FPS and my Pixels in the most efficient manner.
I'm gonna suggest you do Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX as opposed to full size. It'll still fit a regular sized graphics card, etc, but much smaller mobo and if you are only plugging in a drive or two (I'd suggest a SSD boot drive in addition to a big storage drive) it'll be way more portable of a machine cause you can get a way smaller case
