The price would be 2990 dollars US
Basically would ram hurt me if I went with the 1800 12 gb? or would I still have a great PC without slowed performance due to ram?

The specs are great of course, i would change a couple of things but that’s up to you. If you upload the price i can tell you if you should buy it or get another brand. Great specs though.
