Here is Gigabyte's I-ram.

I was just wondering, but if it is possable I might just do it.

Maby, but I would wait a little while. The tecnology is new, and you can bet your ass that faster and bigger (more ram) versions will merge soon, making it actually usable.

A review site has said they asked Gigabyte but they said it cannot be done as of yet due to RAID drivers not recognizing the format or something. I can't remember but as of now it cannot be done or it can but its buggy

4 gb is actually big enough to hold most games entirely and has proven to be faster than any hard drive combo. If you want the fastest load times possible, this is it. If I were a professional gamer, there's no question I would have this in my system. However, a second or 2 faster load times isn't worth a PCI slot to me

Well if you have to ditch the DDR RAM when Vista comes out you might as well keep it and put Vista on the i-RAM so it loads faster, searches faster and maybe a few other programs that might fit on it and have them perform better, maybe not a game but at least the DDR RAM doesnt go to waste

Yeah, but what happens if the battery dies out and your whole OS is erased? Not to mention the fact that you NEED to be using a Giabyte board to take advantage of I-RAM
