I think I'll stick with OCZ, I like to stick with what works and I havent had a problem with the RAM I have now and the OCZ is only $5 more (after rebate).

Get the ram unless you are planning on running high resoltions, ie; 1600x1200. More RAM to load more data into physical memory will increase performance more than a second 7800 would.

At the lower resolutions, 1024x768, a single 7800 is actually faster in many benchmarks I've seen.

Well Im eventually going to want to get a higher res monitor, butfor now I cna only go to 1280x960 in games or x1024 if i tweak it a little. I might do the step up for the GTX for eVGA around my bday or thereafter and maybe get another when the prices drop.

I know I'll need the RAM more in the end than the gfx card, 1 GT is fine for now and maybe a GTX later and when I'm going to need the other GTX I'll buy it then or go with something that's not even out yet.

Who knows maybe with SLI2 on the way we can use 2 differnet cards like CrossFire can

Yeah but I hear the drivers still arent as good and the performance isnt that much better than 2 PCI-E at 8x, until there's a huge difference then maybe

Just like going with SATA, there isnt a HUGE difference b/w SATA RAID 0 and IDE RAID 0 or anything that is noticeble. but SATA2 in RAID 0 is pretty fast

Got the RAM in today and the computer is blazing on loading...took it a couple minutes to break in (loading BF2 seemed the same as my 1GB) btu after a few start-ups the 2GB is loading pretty darn fast
