Da Viksta if you want fast ram and can afford it
Newegg.com - Transcend aXeRam 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1200 (PC2 9600) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
If not just get a set of crucial ddr800
same chips as the ones linked but they are rated 2.2 @ 1200mhz and people are hitting 1400 on them.

unfortunately, i live in UK, so newegg isnt really very useful for me....(we get ripped off for pc parts in the uk anyway)

as for the SLI question, another ting to factor in is that it will be my last upgrade till i get a laptop for university in 3 yrs or so, therefore, tho dual GTS can beat a GTX/512 GTS, i wont ever be upgrading from a single GTS 512 to dual GTS 512, which is why that was not really considered by me - i basically want to fill in the expansion ops...

can anyone suggest a good SLI ready penryn capable board that shouldnt cost more than about £120, or is the Asus P5N-D the only real option?

Also, will it be worth making a move from 750i to 780i, or will 750i be overclockable enough for a Q9450?
