    my current RAM at 800Mhz is compared to my new RAM at 1866Mhz is a great improvement, the new CPU has a greater speed, and of course the SATAIII will hlp quite a bit.
    Janno,

    You need to be aware that pparks is right when he says....

    For example, you are getting an Intel Core i7-930 CPU that is designed to run on DDR3 800/1066 RAM. So, while you are going to install 1866RAM..you won't be able to approach those kind of speeds without overclocking your box.
    Seeing that the price seems to be about the same for 12gig of either the 1866 Dominator GT or the 1600 Dominator, I'd say get the GT's, as they are more of a performance module.

    Personally I would save myself some money by going with either of these these....

    CORSAIR CMG6GX3M3A1600C7 6GB PC3-12800 (DDR3-1600) Triple Channel Memory Retail at ZipZoomfly

    Amazon.com: Corsair TR3X6G1600C7D Dominator 6 GB PC3-12800 1600 MHz 240-pin Triple Channel Core i7 DDR3 Memory Kit:

    You'll get more performance due to the lower CAS speed. 7-7-7 vs 8-8-8.

    If you have 12gig of 8-8-8 or 6gig of 7-7-7, I think the 7's win out. Even If the 12gig of 8's win, it's not something you're going to notice over the 6gig of 7's.

    Again, my two cents :)

    i`m willing to bet that within 5 years we`ll have a rig that is not only capable of 128 bit, but implementing it on a greater scale that 64 bit is implemented now in current systems (don`t forget, 64 bit is not even being fully used today)
    Well, just mark it on your calendar and 5 years from now we can come back and discuss. I do not believe that within 5 years we will have a base of 128bit that greatly exceeds where we are with 64-bit today (which is only really in it's infancy still). I'd actually be surprised if we even had a consumer grade 128bit CPU available in the market.

    take for example my Dell Latitude C400 PIII laptop with 512MB RAM an 40 gb HD.

    it runs W7 easily, with 8 years of age that`s not bad.

    ofcourse it has no 3d support, but Office, AdobeCS3, it all runs...

    so this is a machine that 8 years ago didnt have the highest specs, and just being a simple laptop, can still run W7 with no problems.

    I`m not saying W8 or W9 will bann 64 machines, but i`m guessing my other specs can easily take whatever MS has in store for the coming 2 or even 3 editions of windows, supporting 64 bits a long time to come...
    I never indicated that your current build would have any issues in the coming versions of Windows. In fact, I said you would probably be just fine for nearly 10 years in an earlier post. As you indicate here, even a modest spec machine from 8 years ago is workable in today's world. And even if you would have doubled the RAM back then and spent the money on an 80GB hard drive....by todays' standards both would be antiquated....although you would have spent a lot more. That's the point that I am making here, you hint that you considered 24GB of RAM and that seems just downright silly. I fell that even 12GB of RAM is probably 2x what you really need. And I'm certain that 5 years from now, even with 6GB of RAM, the box would be just fine and dandy.

    No, computers do everything in binary...so you get 0, 1mb, 2mb, 4mb, 8mb, 16mb, 32mb, 64mb, 128mb, 256mb, 512mb, 1024mb, 2048mb, 4096mb, 8194mb, 16,384, 32,678 and so on.
