RAM isnt an issue when going dual core.. but dont bash him guys, we all had our times.

1) if you have the money, the 4600
3)2X 1 gig sticks.. having four sticks slows it down

Yep, now is a rotten time to buy hardware. Especially considering that whatever gaming hardware you buy won't work for most of 2007. 2 major things coming out; Intel 'Conroe' and GeForce 8. They're both in the July-ish timeframe, though nothing is set in stone yet.

Well would you say those things are worth waiting for? Because this comp was gonna be kind of like a bday present to myself(I turn 21 in may). How significant are those things?

correction: 3 major things coming out

1. AMD's new socket AM2 ( i hear they have technology to make two cores act like one, the opposite of how hyper threading makes one core seem like two but usefull :-P )

2. the intel thing

3. Geforce 8 Series!

Socket AM2 isn't really something big. Its just a refreshing of K8, and DDR2 is a nonevent. It can be ignored as far as I'm concerned.

Someone said that AMD is going to DDR2 because Intel is already at DDR2 and DDR looks primitive compared to DDR2 when a non-enthusiast is comparing two PCs. I might have to agree.
