I decided to save up a little more money and I think this will be a real powerhouse of a rig. It's my understanding that the 750 Ti is made with the latest video card technology and this is the best Pentium processor Intel has ever made.

I would have a MINIMUM of 4GB Ram. I'd also look into a bigger HDD to start if you are going to have a lot of games on your PC.

What if I close my web browser before playing games? And if I uninstall games I'm not playing, won't 250GB be enough?

What kind of games are you looking to run? Even if you close all of your programs while gaming, Windows itself will use up some RAM.

I want to run Diablo 3 and TF2.

Spend the extra $13 and go with 4GB.

you need 4GB, at least. windows eats up ~2GB. plus its a bad idea to only use one stick of ram.

i'm not the master of all things pc specs, but i would guess that the GPU is overpowered compared to that CPU and will likely bottleneck bad. but if your only going for games like D3 of TF2 that will probably be fine.

This leaves you the option of getting another stick of 4GB ram in the future. Theres not going to be a difference in dual and single channel when gaming.
