Getting 1x8 was probably my biggest mistake when I built my build.
You can't use dual channel without dual sticks, meaning you're effectively cutting your speed in half by getting 1x8.

Dual channel is when your motherboard uses two sticks of RAM at once. It basically doubles your speed because it can access the second stick at the same time as the first stick. You need two physical things of RAM to take advantage of it.

Thanks elli. How about my graphic card? I heard that there was a radeon one that has the same price but better specs?

Also what do you guys think about the other parts as well?
