wtf 8GB of RAM? you will never need that much even if you're hardcore gamer maxed out every setting. and only 64 bit OS is able to handle RAM larger than 4GB

Yeah but I don't mind spending an extra 200 for some ram when the total price is that high. It's like, when you're already paying that much, just get 8gb. The downside is, 2gb sticks lack in performance.

man for 10g thats a rip. 8gb is just stupid. any more than 4gb is just ridiculous for gaming. IF it WAS the best gaming rig on the market it would have sli ultras or 2900's. i don't even no why they consider the asus striker to be the best gaming mobo ne way. p35 chipset seems to be better imo if ur gaming ur looking for the best priceerformance ratio.
