Especially with the memory . They can run 4 double-sided DDR400 DIMMS at their regular speed instead of having to drop down to 333. Well, since I am going to only have 2 sticks in my new AMD system, it'll be a winchester for me. When I upgrade I can add 2 more sticks and upgrade my processor to a venice ..
