[QUOTE="Iantheone"][QUOTE="GazaAli"]ATI fanboys are really going to be owned with the GTX4xx series :lol:Daytona_178Not really. From what I have seen it will be the same as the GTX200 series and the HD4000 series. Also, AMD will be ahead with the next gen of cards due to Nvidia being 6 months late If anything ATI is late as NVIDIA has just pumped out a brand new architecture,,,ATI is just beefing up their 48** cards and adding DX11.If the 5xxxx cards are just that, then I can't wait to see what they do with a new achitecture.
Wait I forgot something, doesn't ddr3 ram allow triple channel operation meaning three sticks of ram would be optimal (ie. 6GB)? yes and no that depends on the cpu and only the i7 supports triple channel right now if im correctI believe that is correct. As far as I know, no AMD platform supports triple channel at the moment.
[QUOTE="polarwrath11"][QUOTE="polarwrath11"] If you have the windows 7 gadget showing CPU/RAM usage you might've noticed during certain things like installations or copying big files the RAM usage goes up to ~95% - but this irrelevent to you TC as in big copying of files etc RAM usage will always be as high as poss. (could be wrong) so go for 4GB DDR3 and add more later if you see the need.fatcat13sep
