Theres DDR2-1150 ram, and the 8900GTX, will come later on. If I was a millionaire, I would never buy that kind of stuff, because it's so unnecessary....whatever floats your boat.

but it's fun
computers do float my boat, but I wouldn't spend it all on them or anything.
800 is the highest 4gb kits come in right now.

if ur going to use ur computer for mainly games *n work if u bother*, then i suggest waiting for the R600 to come out, then later this year, get the R680 *remake of R600*.

go with AMD, n get AMD's quad-core codenamed Budapest for single socket systems (AM2/AM3), supports HyperTransport 3.0 n possibly supports DDR3. Budapest comes out Q2-Q3 2007 n DDR3 comes out Q1-Q2 2008.

new mobos that support AM3 n DDR2/DDR3, I/O Virtualization, PCI-E 2.0, n 10 Gigabit NIC might come out Q3-Q4 2007 or Q2 2008 as rumored.

reason y im waiting, n looking for a job *possibly a sign spinner* n get me money n spend around $4000 on my computer at the end of this year, but hey, that's just me, u go ahead n do what u want.
