However, the RAM will be running single channel. You will lose the performance boost of dual channel.

AMD is still the cheaper, better budget build. I have not seen a mention of DDR/DDR2 memory. There is no need to "upgrade" to DDR3, all suggestions have been for DDR3 RAM. Also, you can't upgrade from one RAM to another without a motherboard change.

Build to be updated, a reminder to myself.
