My point was don't buy a lot of memory now because by this time next year Socket 939 will hardly exist and then if he wants to upgrade his CPU at all he'll most likely need to move to Socket AM2 and therefore need at least 2x1Gb (that will easily be the memory standard at the time, if not more with Vista requiring 1Gb on it's own) of DDR2 memory. Because DDR memory will basically be useless, I'd say adding more DDR memory to ones system at the moment is pointless and if you hold off just a bit longer you'll be much happier later on, and so will your wallet.
