don't rag on the 7600gt, its a good card. specially if he's looking to upgrade to dx10 later, the 7600 will get the job done for now.

i'd definitely go with 2gb of ram, it helps all around.
and i've heard lots of good about the ds3.

I wouldnt go for the DFI board - I'd wait till they come out with a LanPArty edition for the Core 2 duo.

I'd shoot for 2gig's of ddr2 800 if possible - its expensive now, but about 2 months ago it was 2/3 the price it is now

Yea the AM2 LanParty looks pretty sweet. No word on DFI's site when they'll release a C2D version.

2 gigs of ram are in the works. I don't suppose the price will go down in the near future?

Let's see... DDR2-800, in dual channel, 4-4-4-12, I get like 7200Mb/s ...

What do the 12.8 and 7200 numbers represent?

The speed at which the CPU can access data stored in RAM.

ahh...

So when picking out ram to max your transfer rate, what's the most important factor? Timings?
