Actually I just built a gaming rig for a friend for $1500. Although that price also included $100 for keyboard and mouse, and $100 for windows.

Got him a core i5 6600k, gtx970, 8gb ddr4, 2x 250GB SSD in a raid 0, 850watt psu, and a blu ray burner.

*SMH*

Star Wars Battlefield "Requires" 8GB of RAM. "Recommends" 16GB.

My friend had NO problem playing this game(In Beta) at 1080p res on ULTRA settings. Not even a single hiccup, studder, slow down, etc.

So hey, I think I know what i'm doing. ;-)

And if in the future he ever really DOES need 16GB... he still has 2 open dimm slots that would make an upgrade very easy.

DDR4 is not expensive? 16GB (2x8GB) is like $85-90. and you will want 16gb for video editing... and an i7 for sure.

It gets really expensive when you start getting higher clock speeds!
