Memory undecided. Wanting a low cas latency and 12gb min in triple channel.
Asus WS revolution is Black and Blue
haha but honestly, check it out, definately one of the bests P67 motherboards from Asus.
By the way, Yeah, sandy is Dual channel, but 16gb is not overkill if you are gaming, folding, editing and virtualization... I, just in browsing sessions have sometimes up to 3-6gb (and heck, just Chrome sucks up 2gb and that one is never closed
). If you like leaving your PC on, then more memory will make your life easier, even if you don't leave it on, picture leaving your browsing session opened, rendering a file in Vegas /After effects and while its done, playing incoming Battlefield 3 on the secondary monitor
you can't do that effectively with 8gb of RAM
