    Honestly, you don't need an 8 core cpu or 16 gigs of RAM unless you are doing video rendering or intense graphical applications. A 4 core cpu and 8 gigs are more than enough for what you need.

    When it comes to gaming the main thing you want to keep in mind is that they are GPU intensive. Find out what the recommended hardware is for each game and decide if your video card will do what you need; I have a feeling it will.

    In addition, what is the make and model of the 600W power supply?
