Did someone actually say:

"Vista can read PASSED 4GB of RAM"

Please......my GOD, learn how to spell. It would be "past". That's just wrong. LOL.

Ok ive taken alot of advice from salty, and before i go anywhere with this i wana say thanks salty u helped me alot and everyone else thanks for your opinion. This is what ive got now, ive got one build for my work called the cad build and the other one for gaming called the gaming build, its pretty much final but im hearing bad thoughts about cooling which is annoying me alot because when i read reviews they say the complete opposite. Thanks.

Vista performs great with 2gb but in terms of gaming 4gb is ideal.

Kind of like how 1gb was ok for XP but when gaming 2gb was the sweet spot.

Also I just spotted something majorly wrong with his build...The SLI rig has a P5B Deluxe while the single GPU rig has a 680i chipset?
