theres a combo deal with 4gb DDR2 800 a-data's for $30 more
thats good deal.

i'd get 2 kits of 2gb over 1 kit of 2gb even if it is ddr 1066. you can overclock those ddr 800 to those speeds easy.

Another Vote for the Abit IX38 Quad GT. Its cheaper than the Asus people have been posting.

Its little better too.

um....no?
SLI 8800gts G92 outperforms the GTX's sometimes and comes really close in most situations, and it would cost an extra $300 to get gtx's over gts's
