I'm building a new computer. All i know so far is that im getting AMD and a motherboard with SLI ( dual pci epxress ) . My question however is whats the best ram for this, any reccomendations? Would DDR2 be worth it? and what speed? Getting 1GB for sure. Anyone got any reccomendations also for a PCI express card that got good benchmarks for around $300-400.

Thanks



Links to websites that will help me choose would also be appreciated.

DDR2 is not worth the amount as yet.

As for your card, a 6800Ultra or X850 would surfice for that amount of dosh.

Athlon 64's dont support DDR2 as of yet, according to the AMD roadmap that support will come in late 2006. Or AMD will skip DDR2 altogther and go to DDR3 which is much faster than DDR2 and has lower latencies.

I recently upgraded my video card and ram. the processor stayed the same

Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz Extreme Edition with ht
ddr2 667mhz 1gig(2x512)
evga 6800Ultra PCI-E 256MB N377
This setup works if you have the money
anyhow the point i was getting is the ddr2 is worth the money if you can shell out the additional cost.
However in your price range i would recommend the GeForce 6800GT
i found this for 429.99.

You'll need 400mhz ddr ram for that, and I'd go for the 6800Ultra sli as well ยง); Preferably the amd fx-55 cpu.
